A New York look in Paris


It is forbidden by law to built tall buildings inside Paris city limits so they're built outside like here in La Défense where we're still today.

I think it is a great idea to not do this tall building inside the city. Helps to keep Paris the city that we all love! Paul at Leeds daily photo

No skyscrapers in Stockholm either, not even outside the city,how many people work here?

What an artistic shot of these reflective tall buildings. The colors blend well and the texture is superbe... you even framed it on the bottom with a patterned railing!

I do like that these are clustered together outside of the city limits.

This has the real "big city" look to it. It reminds me of visting the Canary Wharf area on the edge of London. I came up from the underground and felt like I was in New York! What a difference the achitecture can make.

I'm sure the ladies would like to know about Les Quatre Temps.

Dear Laurent, you know I don't like to think about all this! :)

Great reflections on the modern facades!

Sure wish they'd passed that law before they had the bright idea to build the hideous Tour Montparnasse!
