Paris, France

The city that needs no introduction. Put together from a smallish collection of semi-reasonable quality images. A few typical tourist shots here and there but the majority of the images in here will be bread-and-butter architecture/streetscapes.

19th arrondissement, to the north-east of the city, ethnically diverse, and known for not being the safest part of town, although undegoing significant renewal. These images are taken along a canal running through the area.

























Gare De l'est

In the 5th and 6th arrondissements, Haussmann's elegant, bourgeois dream.































Somewhere in the 11th arrondissement.



(Apologies if I've got the locations for some of the pictures wrong, I'm working from my memory, which is all over the place generally)

Great pics. Paris is indeed very beautiful, an urban ideal realized, at least physically. However I must add that I don't entirely associate Haussmann's urban planning with the 5th and 6th arrodisements. Although there are obviously many 'Haussmann-type' streets and buildings, I associate the main core of his plan to be north of the river, not in these older districts which still contain many pre-Haussmann structures as can be seen in these pics. Just my view anyway, I could be wrong.

Thanks! What you're saying makes sense, the south of the river was more 'intimately' scaled to some extent, I'm just not familiar with the exact scale of the grand plan itself!

can't believe I started this thread then just left it! I've had a lot of stuff to do over the last couple of months and the pictures just sat on my computer... oh well, better get this done now before I forget completely!

I'm as stern a critic of Modernism as anyone, but got the chance to visit Le Corbusier's Villa Roche and thought it worthy of documentation...









Some other early modern stuff nearby in the 16th Arrondissement









Less modern housing nearby for comparison...

Along the Seine, toward a tower, I forget what it's called.
