a new beacon in Paris

A new tower called the 'Phare' (beacon) will soon be built in the La Défense business district in Paris, to be completed by 2012.

It will be built by a Los Angeles architectural firm called Morphosis which won a design competition.

The tower will be 68-storeys and stand at 300 metres high (shorter than the 320m Eiffel Tower).

The building/tower will include a 60m high atrium, gardens, cafes, shops and an observation deck and sky restaurant. One of the environmental features of the building will be a wind farm on the top and a curving facade to prevent solar overheating.

I think it looks like a giant cat scratching post.

Today was another quiet day. My human watched Boo which was a very scarey movie, which I enjoyed as my human needed me to protect him.

We're watching Crash right now. It's a very heavy film.
