I like catou07's argument: what a shame it would be to have to see this on your first trip to Paris. I love that city and if I was there when this, thankfully, temporary piece was up, I would be SCARED to go up on it!

The addition looks very art nouveau in design. To me it makes the Eiffel tower look like a cake stand. C'est la vie.

Nope, don't like it. Not at all.

I think this addition is HORRIBLE! Even if it's there temporarily. Like most monuments, I think the Eiffel tower should stay as it is and as it was originally conceived. You don't see anyone running around and changing the Cupola at St-Peters in Rome, the Empire State Building in NYC, or the CN Tower in Toronto. I think the effect is so much more pronounced because it will stick it more than it ever did... even though most Parisians dislike the Eiffel tower, adding this horrendous 'visitor' space will make the monument look atrocious and more out of place than before. Ick. What about those that travel all the way to Paris to see its iconic skyline (as you see in movies, etc.) Ick! I would be heartbroken to go to Paris for the first time and see the Eiffel tower in this way.

Huh. I wonder what the French think of this. Most of them regard the Eiffel Tower as a complete eyesore anyway.

That would be like them changing Big Ben or the Statue of Liberty.

It reminds me of those lizardy dragon animals that has flaps around it's neck that extend when it feel threatened...I can't think of the name of it.

C'est terrible! It looks like some kind of weird flowering UFO landed on top of it. And I'd be scared out of my mind to stand on the extended part like that. It doesn't look supported enough.

Something tells me that although this looks ethereal and airy in the artist's rendering and blueprints, it's going to be much heavier when actually constructed. And I'm not to keen on how it completely changes the tower's beautiful, tapering silhouette. Eh.
