fabulous fire work for the inauguration of the CHABAN DELMAS bridge in BORDEAUX.

CHABAN DELMAS bridge is the largest biggest raising bridge in EUROPE.



The office of architecture of the bridge Bacalan-Bastide is the society of Christophe Cheron, Charles Lavigne (architect of the bridge of Normandy and died in June, 2005) and his son Thomas Lavigne.



The conception of the work and the control of work within the grouping of conception - realization led by the company GTM are realized by Egis JMI, The architects Thomas Lavigne and Christophe Cheron, Hardesty and Hannover and the engineer designer qualified Michel Virlogeux of the Ecole polytechnique and the École nationale des Ponts et Chaussées(French National School of Civil Engineering).



The bridge( presents a total length of 575 meters with 433 meters of main bridge and 117 meters of span levante allowing to protect the maritime, river and factual traffics.



The pylons of the bridge, protected from possible shocks by concrete islands upstream and downstream, present a 77 meter height. They will allow a headroom similar to that of the bridge of Aquitaine in high position, either 55 meters over the bed of the Garonne river, and to that of Pierre's bridge in low position, or 13 meters. The distance between pylons is 110 meters.



The width of the bridge varies 32 to 45 meters following the various sections. it will be shared between vehicles, the public transportation in bus lane, two-wheelers and the pedestrians.



The useful width is 27 meters with 15 meters used by the public transportation in bus lane, the pedestrians and the two-wheelers and 12 meters for the light vehicles and the heavy trucks.



The bicycle and pedestrian paths will be totally separated from the traffic of motor vehicles. So this soft traffic is made outside of the pylons of the bridge.



The bridge is configured for 43 000 vehicles a day at most. In service, it is planned that the bridge gets up approximately sixty times a year, immobilizing the traffic during approximately one hour.

VERCORS MASSIF. FRANCE.



The Vercors is a range of plateaux and mountains in the départements of Isère and Drôme in the French Prealps.
It lies west of the Dauphiné Alps, from which it is separated by the rivers Drac and Isère.
Cliffs at its eastern edge face the city of Grenoble.
The plateau's karstic area includes the famous Vercors Cave System which includes Gouffre Berger.
The Vercors has several resorts for cross-country skiing and for down-hill skiing. Villard-de-Lans is the biggest down-hill ski resort.
The region became noteworthy during World War II when the Maquis du Vercors led the French Resistance against the German occupation and established the Free Republic of Vercors in June and July 1944.......

and the famous vertigo roads (Les routes du vertige) of the Vercors gorges,especially Combe laval (D76), Les Grands goulets (The Great Gullies) (D518), the Nant Gorges (Gorges du Nant) (D22), and the Ecouges gorge (gorges des Ecouges).Roads in and around Vercors are sloping, curvy and narrow mountain roads. Nevertheless, almost all roads are paved, and they are well maintained.

diging, blowing up these cliffs, the hand of the man made all these impressive roads

CITY OF NANCY. PLACE STANISLAS. FRANCE.

The Place Stanislas, known colloquially as the place Stan', is a large pedestrianized square in Nancy, Lorraine, France.
Since 1983, the architectural ensemble comprising the Place Stanislas and the extension of its axis, the Place de la Carrière and Place d'Alliance, has been on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.



After the War of the Polish Succession in 1737, the Duchy of Upper Lorraine, of which Nancy was the capital, was given to Stanisław Leszczyński, former King of Poland and father-in-law to King Louis XV of France.
An earlier ruler, Leopold, Duke of Lorraine, had undertaken a lot of reconstruction in Lorraine, which had been ravaged by a series of wars.
He'd surrounded himself by artists and architects including Germain Boffrand, who trained Emmanuel Héré: hence Stanisław found a pool of talent and experience to draw from on his arrival.



The Place Stanislas is 125 meters long and 106 meters wide. It is paved with light ochre stones, with two lines of darker stones forming a diagonal cross motif. The square is surrounded by an architecturally harmonious ensemble of buildings, most notably:
The City Hall of Nancy (Hôtel de Ville), which occupies the entire South side of the square, with the Préfecture of Meurthe-et-Moselle at the South-East corner;
To the East, the Opéra-Theâtre (formerly the bishop's palace) and the Grand Hôtel (originally the Hôtel de la Reine, actually occupied by the Intendant Alliot);
To the West, the Fine Arts Museum (Musée des Beaux Arts, originally the Collège de Médecine) and the Pavillon Jacquet;
On the North side, the buildings were kept lower for defensive purposes (to permit crossfire between the Vaudemont and Haussonville bastions).
An Arc de Triomphe by Héré stands in the centre of the fourth side, leading to the adjoining Place de la Carrière, where the main axis is developed as a double avenue of trees, with symmetrical buildings facing each other down its length.
At the far end is the Place d'Alliance, defined by the hemicycles of colonnades that enclose the sides and are carried across the pre-existing façade of the Palais du Gouvernement.
The statue in the center of the Place Stanislas, created by Georges Jacquot (1794–1874), represents Stanislas standing, dressed in flowing robes, holding a sword in his left hand and pointing towards the north with his right hand. The inscriptions on the high marble pedestal read :
• South face : "Stanislas Leszczynski, Roi de Pologne, Duc de Lorraine et de Bar, 1737-1766"
(Stanislas Leszczynski, King of Poland, Duke of Lorraine and Bar, 1737–1766)
• North face : "A Stanislas le Bienfaisant, la Lorraine Reconnaissante, 1831, Meurthe-Meuse-Vosges"
(To Stanislas the Benefactor, Lorraine [is] grateful, 1831, Meurthe-Meuse-Vosges)
The four corners and West and East sides of the square feature gilded wrought iron gates and lanterns, created by Jean Lamour (1698–1771), who was also responsible for the wrought iron balustrade on the main staircase in the Hôtel de Ville and the balcony across the center of its main façade. The North-West and North-East corners also feature ornate fountains designed by Barthélémy Guibal (1699–1757)

Shock in LE HAVRE. french city.
the swimming-complex LES BAINS/baths DES DOCKS by JEAN NOUVEL are closed for ...renovation.....after just 4 years opening.

http://www.76actu.fr/ou-en-est-le-ch...u-havre_24950/ in french

The Baths of Docks, LES BAINS DES DOCKS opened to the public in July, 2008, suffered on a premature ageing of its internal facings, in particular constituted by elements in molten glass.

A municipal equipment which cost 21 million euros collapses

Financing of renovation : 7 380 000 euros without taxes estimated. (among which 53 % for the stone floor)
