What's Paris' fascination with glassy pyramids?

Not exactly. What's the rationale for Herzog and de Meuron's design? How does a super-expensive system of cantilevers and/or setbacks make the building a good solution to the challenges presented by its site and program?

It seems to me that this building is built on a thin, narrow leftover site (I believe the French call them friches?) created when the Peripherique highway was built.

Nothing much I guess. The Louvre entrance just turned out to be a success, people like it.

This building is called Triangle and it's back on track. A public study issued a favorable opinion about it, which means the building permit is likely to be granted.

As always, legal appeals from opponents are very expected but at the end of the day, appeals of that kind usually fail.

The video says 42 floors - thread title should be updated.

The Council of Paris has voted in favor of Tour Triangle.

Unibail Gets Approval to Build $558 Million Skyscraper in Paris
by Francois De Beaupuy June 30, 2015

A plan by Unibail-Rodamco SE to build a 500 million-euro ($558 million) skyscraper at the southern edge of Paris was approved by the city council after the property group amended the office project to include a hotel.
The Tour Triangle will have 69,900 square meters (752,000 square feet) of offices, less than the 80,000 square meters planned in a previous project that was rejected in a city council vote in November. The project will also include a 120-room, four star hotel, co-working spaces as well as shops, child-care facilities and a restaurant.
“I always considered that the Tour Triangle was a great chance for Paris and the Greater Paris,” Mayor Anne Hidalgo, who’s backing the project, said Tuesday.
The plans were opposed by some of Hidalgo’s allies in the Green Party because they’re concerned about traffic congestion.
Paris has lagged behind cities including London in building office towers because some residents oppose them on aesthetic grounds. The Montparnasse office tower, built in 1973, remains one of the few Paris skyscrapers outside the La Defense financial district.

Herzog & de Meuron's Tour Triangle set to be built in Paris after passing final legal hurdle

Quote:
The Tour Triangle, designed by Herzog & de Meuron, is poised to become the tallest skyscraper built in central Paris since 1973, after winning a lengthy court battle.

Paris's administrative court has upheld a building permit that was issued in April 2015, rejecting two appeals that had been filled against the building. The court found that the building permit issued in 2015 was not unlawful.

The latest ruling should clear the way for construction to begin on the 180-metre-high tower, which has been caught up in legal battles since 2014.

"The mayor of Paris has not made a manifest error of assessment in considering that the project is not likely to affect the character or interest of neighbouring places and monumental perspectives," said the court, as reported by Le Parisien.

Developer Unibail-Rodamco intends to begin construction of the tower in 2020, with the aim to complete in time for the Olympics in 2024.

Bwaha, Minato's original post is over 10 years old.
What an obnoxious place when it comes to building any highrise...
So is the design of that thing anyway. Obnoxious.

I love it. But aren't Parisians opposed to tall towers outside of La Defense?

It depends on areas indeed. But I think we can make it over Ivry and my Val-de-Marne spot. There's some cool project on the edge of the central city, almost in Ivry-sur-Seine with luxury high-rise condos and all, that's not too far my home. I'm hopeful it won't face too much of NIMBYism, cause we don't have so many landmarks or remarkable things around here.

La Défense is a shitty corporate place, though. Almost every highrise has to go through a whole bunch of legal appeals just because a corporation next door says - no, you won't be taller than me. Crappy private corporate mindset, really.
That's a reason why I sometimes have a feeling that public officials are still actually quite useful, cause their very duty is to serve the community as a whole, and not just particular interests.
It's very interesting to take note of this point.

Except that it's not going to be the tallest building built in Inner Paris since 1973, Tour Duo has the same height and is already under construction.
