Why would I want this confusing, amorphous, oversized blob of metal in the middle of historic London?

20 Fenchurch street is in London, and it is pretty much hated unanimously. If THAT had been proposed for Paris and Londoners said they hated it, then you would say it was because it was not proposed in London. The same for Beetham tower(which was 220m), and Doon Street Tower.

I rest my case.

This is how the "tour signal" will look from the southwest.

Weird.
It's trying too much to be original.

I don't believe that profile represents the final design. When I compare it with renderings, it simply doesn't fit.

I'm sure the more artistic of you can do a better job but this is my reaction to this design: :)

I didn't understand at the beginning but the "fat" part of the tower is directed towards the catch of the render, on the front of the tower.

Sorry, I'm not a native English speaker, I don't understand what you mean.

Fabb Dec 8, 2006 4:20 PM

Oh well.
Who cares.
After the initial infatuation, the big fans of this project have rapidly become silent.

That doesn't bode well for the future fame of this building. Surprising at first, boring a few minutes later.

Here is a picture of La Défense nowadays:

And here are the projects we know of about La Défense by 2012:

that is impressive :hyper:

That's just random. There's a 180 meters designed by Viguier which will be built near Ariane on the southern side. The Ministry of Public Works should also be above 200 meters on the southern side.

Actually, the Morphosis tower is built on the municipality of Puteaux, so there's absolutely no administrative barrier to build taller on the southern side.

As the Northern circular boulevard has been already re-designed, I guess it's easier to market towers nearby it. The southern circular boulevard will be re-designed later, and I guess taller towers will come then.

Take a look at this site where you can see T1 grow into the sky:

Fabb Feb 7, 2007 9:42 AM

It's almost as tall as Adria&Egée now.

Grumpy Feb 10, 2007 10:08 PM

I wonder if there is a place at LD where you can see both T1 and Granite, would love to have them on one picture
