MACHINES OF THE ISLE OF NANTES. city of NANTES. FRANCE

http://www.lesmachines-nantes.fr/en/
website in english


video in english


The Machines of the Isle of Nantes (Les Machines de l'île) is an artistic, touristic and cultural project based in Nantes, France.



The project of Machines de l'île in Nantes aims to promote city's image and tries to build an identity as a creative metropole of dream and of fantasy.

In the warehouses of the former shipyards in Nantes, the Machines of the Isle is created by two artists, François Delarozière (La Machine) and Pierre Orefice (Manaus association), visualising a travel-through-time world at the crossroads of the "imaginary worlds" of Jules Verne and the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci.



The Site
Since 1 July, 2007, the site is open to the public.
Three major Machines projects include :
the Great Elephant (2007)
the Marine Worlds Carrousel (2012)
the Heron Tree (2014)

The Great Elephant





The mechanical elephant is 12 meters high and 8 meters wide, made from 45 tons of wood and steel. It can take up to 49 passengers for a 45-minute walk. It is a non-exact replica of The Sultan's Elephant from Royal de Luxe, which toured the world from 2005 to 2007 (the main difference being that this elephant was designed to carry spectators).



The Marine Worlds Carrousel





The Marine Worlds will be a huge carrousel, rising nearly 25m high and measuring 20m in diameter. It will feature 35 moving underwater creatures on three levels: the ocean floor, the depths, and sea and boats. Visitors will be able to move about amidst a ballet of aquatic animals and sea carriages, as well as climb aboard and guide the movements of the Machines.

The Heron Tree


maquette of the project

The Heron Tree will be a steel structure of 45 meters in diameter and 28 meters in height, topped with two herons. The project plans to allow visitors to climb either onto the back or onto the wings of the birds for a circular flight over the hanging gardens of the tree. inaugurated year 2017.

The Machine Gallery
This is an exhibition place to illustrate the background story of the machines. Some visitors could be invited to control marine animals or the European Flight Test Centre, etc.

















The entire process of the construction is on display by sketches, models and films. In July 2008, three new machines are scheduled to be added into the gallery.

The Workshop
This is the site of fabrication for people to observe the ongoing building process. Today, the construction of the Marine Worlds occupies one part of the workshop.

PONT DU GARD. south of FRANCE.



The Pont du Gard (English: Bridge of the Gard) is an ancient Roman aqueduct bridge that crosses the Gardon River in Vers-Pont-du-Gard near Remoulins, in the Gard département of southern France.
It is part of the Nîmes aqueduct, a 50 km-long (31 mi) structure built by the Romans to carry water from a spring at Uzès to the Roman colony of Nemausus (Nîmes).



Because the terrain between the two points is hilly, the aqueduct – built mostly underground – took a long, winding route that crossed the gorge of the Gardon, requiring the construction of an aqueduct bridge.

Built in the 1st century AD, the Pont du Gard is the highest of all Roman aqueduct bridges and is the best preserved after the Aqueduct of Segovia. It was added to UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in 1985 because of its historical importance.



The bridge has three tiers of arches, standing 48.8 m (160 ft) high.
The whole aqueduct descends in height by only 17 m (56 ft) over its entire length, while the bridge descends by a mere 2.5 cm (0.98 in) – a gradient of only 1 in 3,000 – which is indicative of the great precision that Roman engineers were able to achieve using only simple technology.



The aqueduct formerly carried an estimated 200,000 m3 (44,000,000 imp gal) of water a day to the fountains, baths and homes of the citizens of Nîmes.
It continued to be used possibly until the 6th century, with some parts used for significantly longer, but lack of maintenance after the 4th century meant that it became increasingly clogged by mineral deposits and debris that eventually choked off the flow of water.



After the collapse of the Roman Empire and the aqueduct's fall into disuse, the Pont du Gard remained largely intact due to the importance of its secondary function as a toll bridge.
For centuries the local lords and bishops were responsible for its upkeep in exchange for the right to levy tolls on travellers using it to cross the river, although some of its stones were looted and serious damage was inflicted on it in the 17th century.
It attracted increasing attention starting in the 18th century and became an important tourist destination.



It underwent a series of renovations between the 18th and 21st centuries, commissioned by the local authorities and the French state, that culminated in 2000 with the opening of a new visitor centre and the removal of traffic and buildings from the bridge and the area immediately around it.
Today it is one of France's most popular tourist attractions and has attracted the attention of a succession of literary and artistic visitors.

INAUGURATION OF FRAC MARSEILLE. 5757 sqm. by Madame FILIPPETTI French Minister of Culture

The regional Funds(Collections) of contemporary art, abbreviated by the acronym FRAC, are cultural institutions existing in every French region to promote the contemporary art.




Kengo KUMA the japanese architect



































its nice, its clean, but minimalism in architecture is not my favourite architecture, for me its an impression of lack, coolness, a little empty.

an other example of minimalist architecture:the LOUVRES LENS Museum by SANAA.outdoor averything is fabulous, the big exhibition rooms with every art works TOO, but on this picture you can zee the big entrance/lobby of this museum....and you have No furniture no objects...nothing only concrete glass. its too empty for me. To enlarge the showroom and to make a smaller hall/lobby would have been more sensible. but shure the total realisation is nice, and its only my opinion.

City of HEROUVILLE SAINT-CLAIR. Suburbs of CAEN. FRANCE.

Herouville Saint-Clair is a real Architectural laboratory, unique.

Hérouville-Saint-Clair remained a village of the plain of Caen without any peculiarity until 1963.


lights by Kersalé

At the beginning of 1960s, in front of the necessity of enlarging the caennaise urban area(conglomeration), Hérouville is held(retained) to welcome the new housing of the zone due to its surface (1063 hectares).


college by CASTRO

The largest part of the built city is at present the fact of the new town, based(established) in 1963.
The first stone of the new town is put in 1963, throwing(launching) the construction of the first modern district: the Beautiful Doors.




appartments jean nouvel

The Big Park and The High Madness are born in the continuity.
The construction of the new town will last until 1978 with the new districts of the Valley, then some Wood.



The last district which develops is situated to Lébisey and stays a residential zone rather distant besides from the municipality.






cinema/café

The former(old) village, stayed as it is, becomes a district named(appointed) the Village.




offices

The city hall will stay there until 1987 before moving in the premises(places) of the Douce Citadelle, city center recently builds: of an architectural aspect with a resolutely contemporary bias, even if it is inspired by the medieval conception(design) of an urban area with the city hall as the castle, the church, also by cultural places such the library(bookcase), the cinema Coffee(Café) of the images and the theater.






School inspectorate

The boldness of this set had for purpose " in the heart of the city, [to dare] the bet to establish the identity of Hérouville, to establish an important part of this identity on the report(relationship) of the culture and of her démocratie ".


Europe square

In spite of these efforts, the city center will remain a big grey and deserted place(square), a quite close shopping gallery remaining the real place of exchange and meeting of the inhabitants Hérouvillais.




offices buildings in construction

The architects who had conceived(designed) the plans of the city are known to have been innovators in the history of the french contemporary architecture French.
It is in particular about big contemporary signatures such as Jean Nouvel, Massimiliano Fuksas, Alain Provost, Roland Castro, Christian de Portzamparc.

police

The town planning to which their creativity had given free rein allied green spaces and pedestrian spaces forbidden the road traffic or allowed in the same district an architectural coeducation(mixing) with in particular the closeness of buildings and detached houses(flags) and the presence within them of shopping malls of closeness.
