Buildings of this height should be confined to La Defense.

I think so too. This tower doesn't really belong there IMO.

WOW what a nice tower. We don´t have that often towers that looks totaly different from two perspectives. On the second last picture in the first post it looks like a normal pyramid, but on the last pic in the same post it looks like a "normal" futuristic shaped tower. The wavy shape of the sides of the building reminds me to Chicago´s aqua bldg. The diagonal lines adds well into the design. Would be cool if they could build it with the same translucent effect like shown on the second pic in the first post.

It's an innovative design but not a very attractive one. However, I am not without hope, it could probably easily be tweaked into something that looks really cool. I think it has potential, just needs a little bit of work.

The design is very futuristic indeed, though i personally don't really like pyramid-shaped highrises like that...
I'd say that highrises could and should be built inside the city limits of Paris again, though only if they don't interfere with historical buildings (like the ones on this pic:http://tempsreel.nouvelobs.com/file/565643.jpg) , and if they aren't built too close to monuments or other buildings of historical importance (e.g Tour Eiffel, Elysee, and the Louvre)

I don't know if that's the right location for towers,and the pyramid-shaped side looks too massive.
