The Eiffel Tower is perfect as it is.
Why would anyone want to remodel it?

i guess it's temporarily because it's for 120th Anniversary of la tour eiffel....
but la tour eiffel was also temporarily.... and it's still there....

i just hope it won't be the same for this....

IT WAS A JOKE (a canular. how do you say that?)
Actually, those architects never won any prize for this project but they put their project on the internet (guess because they were proud or something).... and english newspaper thought it was true.... Never trust The Guardian is the only thing I trust in now.... they didn't even search if the sources were correct....

so.... put JOKE in the title maybe, non?

No way! Well they fooled me. I guess I trust lemeray too much. I'm glad it was a joke though, it seemed like a huge waste of time and money.

Thank the good Lord for that...

I read it too in another paper, and was none to happy- what hideousness.

Oh that's lovely because that addition, no matter how temporary, made it very unattractive and very dangerous in my eyes.
