Thom Mayne Says “Watch Your Back, Eiffel”

Watch out, Eiffel Tower, you’ve got Thom Mayne looking straight into your little criss-crossed tower-y eyes, just waiting to match you, floor by floor. It was just announced that Mayne has been selected to design the largest skyscraper in Paris, the “Phare,” a strange looking gigantic office building that will be just shy of the Eiffel’s 324 meters. Here’s some about how the building will also be earth-friendly:

Mayne’s design shows a striking building twisting asymmetrically upward and topped by a crown of spiky antennae. It also contains some “green” features. Wind turbines on the roof will generate heating and cooling for the building for part of the year and a retractable outer layer will cut down on the heat the building absorbs through its windows during the summer, Unibail said in a statement.
