Looking good. For the sake of symmetry, two +300mtrs towers to the left (on the above screenshot) please. Dare I challenge someone able to photoshop this idea?

I don't like those towers, they don't fit in the skyline.

I can't understand Paris would build this. It destroys the axis of symmetry of the whole city.

(To Metropolitan) Crap! I accidentally put the word "not" in my previous ost. I meant to say that "the towers should be constructed instead of cancelled".

just built it, it will be beautiful in the end...just like f.e. the eiffel tower, there were times they wanted to demolish it...but now it is the symbol of Paris/France and one of the great symbols of western civilization

There's something with these towers that reminds me of Foster's proposal for the Freedom Tower

On the skyline, they make it look disproportioned and they look horrendously misplaced. In context, they appear as two fingers up at the rest of Paris. But as towers on their own, they are beautiful and of a wonderful quality in design.

mmmh. Not especially my taste. Hard to explain, but it has something to do with the shape of the towers in combination with the height. To dominant for this shape i would say.
