Well it is part of a high-rise business district. There's nowhere in Paris more suitable for something like this.

The Shard isn't even part of a tall buildings cluster but we're happy with it. Why does it HAVE to be in the middle of the cluster? If I understand correctly it's positioning will give the most impressive impact from the center of Paris. I've heard other people say that it would be better if there was a tower on each side of La Defense, but I disagree with that sentiment.

Foster is building monuments only for himself and not for the cities. His designs totally disrespects the place and sourrounding architecture. This twin towers with their design are totally out of place throwing one of the best skylines in Europe out of balance. Fosters builing would be great in only one city, but if ervery citie-gov thinks, they need an "interesting" Foster to "catch up" the world skylines diversity get boring.

Why are we talking about the shard. Every city and every tower is diffirent.
These towers are much wider at the top and a bit taller it gives more problems with.
And to place the towers on each of La defense is a bad idea.

The old design is way better. This is letdown from Foster.

I brought up the Shard because it's relevant to the conversation. Both are major projects in historical cities, but somehow according to you HT is out of place while the Shard is not. Just because Hermitage isn't right at the center of La Defense doesn't mean this project is poorly located, in fact it could prove better when viewing from central Paris. Hermitage being wider and 'a bit taller' is a poor excuse considering the massive difference in the landscape that your argument needs to make up for.

Mayor bertrand delanoe won't bid for a new election in 2014, then ump representant could win -> the consequences are positives for construction of towers in la defense!

PS: i'm not for ump french party

It makes no sense, La Défense is not in Paris. And on top of that there have been a lot of skyscraper projects in Paris since Delanoë is the mayor, so your conclusion clearly shows your political preference.

If you turn the towers of 90° it's the opposite, the top is slim and the bottom is fat !

What a strange set of towers to use to compare with the Tours hermitage. They should have really used the Chrysler building as a rep from America. its a wrong combination of new and old

I don't understand Chrysler is Older than ESB. The EBS is better anyway. Know what I don't understand, why make it wider at the top.
