It's a nice tower, I like it. Of course it won't be a revolution, but if the construction is of quality, it is the kind of little touch that can help getting a more "21st century" image to the district.

It's really similar to Dominique Perrault's projet for the Tour Phare.

there are rumours about it .
IBM will leave Descartes next year , and the tower will be empty and so ready to a massive renovation or destruction .

Manhattan has rumours about projects of renovation with adding some storeys on it (100 => 150m)

What are your sources for Athena ? I think it's a place for a proposed project for Signal.

Sorry, Descartes is too young for a destruction. Descartes is only 20 years old and has 40 floors. Whatever that project is, it needs to be cancelled. descartes is fine the way it is. It needs to find a new tenant.

Paris win for Stern!

Robert A. M. Stern to design green office tower at La Defense, Paris
The French insurance company, Aviva, announced today that it has selected Robert A.M. Stern Architects to design a new environmentally responsible office tower at La Defense outside of Paris. The 35-storey, 45,000 square meter building dubbed Tour Carpe Diem aspires to be “an important step forward in the evolution of La Defense toward pedestrian-friendly urbanism and environmentally responsible architecture”. When complete, the building will connect the raised esplanade - the “dalle” that continues the axis of the Champs-Elysees- and the urban fabric of the city of Courbevoie to the north.

Tour Carpe Diem will significantly exceed French regulations for environmentally responsible development. The building will have a triple glazed curtain wall with integrated sunshades that respond to the solar orientation of each façade and innovative grilles that provide natural ventilation to reduce air conditioning loads. Additional sustainable design strategies include solar water heating, a heat recovery system and high performance lighting.

Stern bested Jacques Ferrier Architect (Paris) and Foster + Partners (London) in a three-way competition. SRA Architects of Chatillon, France, will serve as associate architect for the project.

There is still a lot of difference...
What's the problem? Don't be outraged.

Cool tower, I hope the render will be similar to the reality.
