I don't like it.
Tower is ok, but this strange bottom "cut" by the road... what the hell is this?

Really interesting structure and i especially love this street feauture......la defense is getting a nice architectural experimental playground.....will look really cool within few years...

seems like this street feauture is the roof of a mall or so in the last two renders the left one shows shops and people walking around the shops

the cladding looks cool like an ornamental pattern....

it seems to me like it's inspired from fashion, the tower's cladding and the low rise looks like a woman's dress.

I like the shape of the building, but I'm not to sure if I like the facade, on some renderings it looks nice but on some it doesn't look convincing.

yep, this showroom is well known, and Manuelle Gautrand could become more famous if she keeps this way, just like Toyo Ito from Japan.

If that "thing" popping outta the side of the metro line is a station I have to say it's a pretty innovative way of building. I actually like this building.

Maybe, in a city with a huge muslims population like Paris it wouldn't look too weird.
Anyway I don't think that it is the case.
