Interesting, however the mayor does not seem so keen in continuing a bold architectural and town planning policy.
He already cancelled the project of the "Halles Layssac" of Gulizzi (see below) and said there would be no new "Folie" after the first 2...

I love Montpellier, very "avant-garde" city. Antigone is an amazing district and the tramways are very cool too.

I was really fan of the Halles Layssac, very sad it won't be built. On the other hand I can't wait to see the Arbre Blanc completed and the highrises that will be added to the CBD (it really needs it...) and next to the new city hall.
