I really love its architecture but I totally agree with you El Greco, with a bad cladding, it could look very disappointing & terrible...time will tell.

“French romances occupy a central position in the development of medieval European
literature. Their most popular subject matter by far was the Arthurian legend, which, though it
had its origins elsewhere, was first cast in romance form in France: the Round Table, the
tragic love story of Lancelot and Guinevere, and the notion of the Grail quest were all French
innovations."

Excelent! But the name it's kind of wannabe, don't like it.

Its name isn't official yet tio Raffo .

Hexagone usually refers to France owing to its 6 sides. It also sounds like the american Pentagone...



However, the project is also called Balardgone refering to its location in Balard.

I personally like Hexagone a lot for the above explanations.

I hope Paris will soon be known as a city with a fine contrast of ultra-modern and classical low rise architecture.

There's already many modern low rise building in Paris, and some of them are of outstanding quality, but they fit their environment so well they seem to disappear within the classical buildings. You just need to look for them!


Thank you for the updates Jex. That second photo is amazing.
