Super! La Defense is probably my least favourite part of Paris, but these pictures show that it has far more exciting and innovative skyscrapers than most American cities.

That is great! I like this part of Paris better than even some of the historic sections, cause it shows how a city can have both the best classic archiecture and extremely progressive modern areas to appeal to any kind of archiecture fan... I'm sure a lot of people in the world don't even know Paris has a section of the city like this. It looks great!

These pictures bear a striking resemblance to areas of Shinjuku and Akasaka in Tokyo, believe it or not.

I was looking for a thread like this, depicting the modern area of Paris, which I knew existed somewhere! If I should go to Paris again, that's where I'll go, directly from the Airport, and skip all that old stuff!

Now, I'm guessing there's a modern area of Rome as well, but how come we never get to see it!!!

IMBY, is there any reason why you are digging up threads from five years ago? Seriously, man.
