juppé has 0% to become president.
He should stay at bordeaux because he makes with his team a very good job!

Personally I think France needs right now a president like him.
With him in the presidency I think France could grow more economically and that could gives a mayor push for Bordeaux.

I think it is obvious that the next president of France will be from the right side of the political spectrum, so it would be good if it was a balanced person with a lot of administrative achievemets, instead of a fearmonger populist. But I don't know much about Juppé, I hope he fits the bill as I described it.

Bordeaux Best cruise destination in 2016: The most desirable destinations by ship



Quote:
By the same token, voyages to regions that were once the preserve of hardy pioneers are now accessible to many more of us – today we can cruise (in considerable comfort) to destinations such as Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, the Arctic and Alaska, to name just a few.

River cruising is another huge growth area. As millions of travellers have discovered, sailing Europe's historic waterways takes you to the heart of the continent's many and varied cities, towns and villages.

In the search for more rivers to cross, cruise lines are launching ships on Portugal's Douro, France's Garonne and Gironde in the Bordeaux region, south-east Asia's Mekong and Myanmar's Irrawaddy and Chindwin. America's Mississippi, Snake and Columbia rivers are also attracting the attention of keen cruisers – and then there's the Peruvian Amazon and India's Ganges and Brahmaputra to explore. As we sail into another big year on the world's oceans and rivers, here's our pick of 2016's most desirable destinations.

BORDEAUX, FRANCE
WHY HERE Viking and Uniworld started cruising the Garonne, Gironde and Dordogne rivers in 2014; Scenic joined them in 2015 and this year APT's AmaDolce sets sail from Bordeaux for the first time.

PERFECT FOR Francophiles, wine-lovers and gourmet travellers.

SEE AND DO Enjoy visits to world-renowned wine regions such as St Emilion, Sauternes, Medoc and Cognac, drink in picturesque vineyard views (as well as plenty of wine), sample oysters at Arcachon and visit fairytale chateaux and castles.

WHO APT's 148-passenger MS AmaDolce (aptouring.com.au); Scenic's 169-passenger Scenic Diamond (www.scenic.com.au); Uniworld's 130-passenger River Royale (www.uniworld.com); Viking's 190-passenger Viking Forseti (www.vikingrivercruises.com.au)

A Bordeaux housing project breathes new life into the city docks


©ANMA

Quote:
Bordeaux's former harbour and shipyard is turning into one of the city's hottest spots. Masterplanned by Nicolas Michelin's firm ANMA, the Bassins à flot (Wet Docks) will become home to 12,000 citizens by 2030, and are already transforming into a dynamic mix of housing, work, entertainment, as well as community-based projects.

Silos, sluices and a wartime submarine base (now converted into a cultural centre) constitute the local architectural heritage. The scale of industrial hangars, their corrugated cladding and shed roofs dictated a site-specific design language to Michelin and his colleagues from some 80-plus firms, who are currently busy giving the Bassins à flot a new lease of life.

ANMA's recently completed housing project reflects on a 'new approach to city-making', say the architects. Two buildings sheathed in corrugated metal flank a garden with a glazed saw-tooth roof spanning over it. One building contains social rent units, the other, private flats for sale. Both volumes are long and slim, thus allowing for dual aspect layouts for every flat.

Having opted for a shared ground-floor car park instead of a more expensive underground garage, the architects were able to carve out enough budget to plant a garden on the first-floor slab and cover it with a smart roof. The roof's south-facing slopes are fitted with solar panels, while the steeper, north-facing ones are fully transparent. The resulting atrium creates an 'inter-climatic space' that guarantees all-season comfort for people and plants. In summer, natural ventilation enables a cooling effect as hot air is let out through the openings in the roof. In winter, the atrium stocks warm air, which is then used to ventilate the apartments also helping keep the insulation of the garden-facing facades to a minimum.

Oriented towards the docks basin, this garden atrium is in fact a roofed version of the new district's characteristic planted 'pathways'. A whole system of these is planned to be arranged across the area, offering scenic views and leading pedestrians and cyclists to the waterside.

New Caisse d’Epargne headquarters of Aquitaine Poitou-Charentes


©Architecture Studio

Quote:
Located on one of the banks of the Garonne river, the new headquarters enhances Bordeaux’s urban space and heritage around the Paludate dock.

The volume unity reinforces its image of solidity. Strata, folds, intervals and faults animate its façades and convey a contemporary aesthetic on a human scale.

The project aims to take advantage of the site and its orientation to reduce the need of all energy uses. The compact design of the building minimizes heat loss; its transparency helps reducing lighting consumption and solar protections are part of an eco-design approach. This passive approach optimizes the functioning of the positive energy building.

16 Hottest Neighborhoods to Visit in 2016, According to Airbnb



Quote:
Capucins, Bordeaux (966% growth)

Fans of oysters flock to the Marché des Capucins, where the briny bivalves abound. And while the market is the main attraction, more and more visitors are opting to sticking around and explore the 18th century architecture on display in the neighborhood's many small squares and winding streets.

Bordeaux orders more Alstom LRVs
Wednesday, January 06, 2016



BORDEAUX's Metropolitan Council has placed a €28m order with Alstom for a further 10 Citadis LRVs to provide additional fleet capacity for the expansion of its 79km light rail network.

The new 44m-long LRVs will enter service in 2018 and are identical to the existing fleet of 105 trams all of which have been ordered since 2000. They are equipped with Alstom's APS ground-level power supply system, which was pioneered in Bordeaux, and can accommodate up to 300 passengers.

16 Places to Travel in 2016, by Luxe Adventure Traveler



Quote:
3. Bordeaux, France

Travelers to Europe often come with a checklist and it usually includes London, Paris and Rome. The “second cities” definitely don’t mean second best; they are the cities that are just lesser known. When I was preparing to head on a Viking River Cruise to one of France’s most esteemed wine regions, I decided to arrive early and explore a bit outside of the tours I’d be doing with Viking and Bordeaux is definitely lesser known – I couldn’t find much information outside of the usual sights.

What I found once I arrived was a stunning neoclassical city that is the gateway to some of the most beautiful wine country I’ve ever seen. And there are so many unique ways to explore, like touring in true French style on a Bordeaux convertible 2cv tour or pairing Bordeaux’s white wines with France’s famous oysters on an Arcachon tour.

Even if you aren’t a wine lover, Bordeaux still has a lot of offer. The city has several UNESCO World Heritage Sites and adventure travelers won’t want to miss a visit to Dune du Pilat where you can paraglide off of Europe’s largest sand dune.

Travel Tips

When to go: There’s never a bad time to visit Bordeaux with mild winter temperatures, but the vineyards are green and you can enjoy the best of the outdoors April through October.

How to get around: The city of Bordeaux has an excellent tram system and the railway station links it with many French destinations. There are a number of tours you can book to visit wine country so that you don’t have to toss a coin and decide who is on designated driver duty. This private day tour explores the Medoc and the stunning wine chateaux, while this bike tour takes you through the hilly vineyards around Saint-Emilion before stopping for lunch in the gardens of a chateau.

Where to stay: The Grand Hotel de Bordeaux & Spa is located in the heart of the city and steps away from a tram stop, making exploring Bordeaux easy. The hotel’s restaurant, Le Pressoir d’Argent, has always been a draw and one of my favorite celebrity chef’s, Gordon Ramsay, took over the restaurant in 2015. It’s his second restaurant in France. The hotel also has a three-level spa with a panoramic jacuzzi terrace that overlooks the Grand Theater and rooftops of Bordeaux.

Insider Tip: The École du Vin de Bordeaux is one of the best places in the city to try the various appellations of the Bordeaux wine region. From July through September, you can also brush up on your wine knowledge with the school’s various 2-hour seminars.

New green light for the Bordeaux-Toulouse high speed line


ARCHIVES GUILLAUME BONNAUD

Quote:
Adding a further 327 route-km, the line would run south from Bordeaux for 55 km, before dividing to form an inverted Y-shape. The eastern branch towards Toulouse would have stations serving Agen and Montauban, while the western route to Dax would include a station north of Mont-de-Marsan. A station for regional high speed services provisionally called ‘Halte Sud Gironde’ is also proposed south of the junction.

The Bordeaux – Toulouse section would open in 2024, followed by Bordeaux – Dax in 2027. The new line would permit a Bordeaux - Toulouse journey time of 1 h 05 min, Paris – Toulouse trips of 3 h 10 min, with Bordeaux – Marseille trips cut to about 4 h.

A second phase of the project is also proposed. This envisages the construction by 2032 of a 91 km mixed-traffic line from Dax to the Spanish frontier, which would be designed for 220 km/h operation.

Nice to see (here: http://www.journaldunet.com/economie...lus-endettees/) that all this public investment is happening in Bordeaux without generating much debt. Currently the debt of Bodeaux is only the tenth in France in absolute numbers (284M euro), behind Argenteuil, Reims, Saint-Etienne, Lille (411M), Lyon (424M), Nice (507M), Levallois (! 544M), Marseille (1.85Bn) and Paris (4.17Bn). In relative debt (per inhabitant), Bordeaux doesn't appear in the top 20 list in that article.

This palace is one of the major monuments of the city of Bordeaux and has for a long time been a hospital dedicated to the care of the deaf and dumb of France.

This building has been transformed in the twentieth century in a ‘Hôtel de Police’ (police headquarters) and will be developed in housing project. The competition focused on the enhancement of the site and facilities. Our team concentrated with great interest on this program, with the integration of contemporary functions within an ancient heritage. Our agency has got a particular interest and knowledge for this type of subject.

Une entreprise procède au terrassement de ce qui sera la zone vie du chantier. D'ici à deux semaines, les travaux préparatoires au terrassement proprement dit de la salle devraient commencer.
A proximité immédiate, à peu près en vis-à-vis de l'autre côté de l'avenue Alfonséa (emplacement du futur gymnase ?), va être créé un vaste chantier de parking. La preuve en images.
