Parisians found it ugly, but I think it got popular very quickly as the world expos held in Paris were the most popular. London started building it's own tower but then destroyed it during construction. I find it amazing. Such a timeless iron work, like the Empire State building.

Of all the great cities of the world, Paris along with Rome and one or two others, probably lost the least number of important buildings during the 20th century's obsession with modernism. Gare Montparnasse is one of the worst losses as it was replaced with absolute shit, now one of the most inhuman and depressing places in central Paris. The other major loss was of course Les Halles which could have been restored in the way London's Covent Garden market was. Many of the other places listed on this site were temporary "exhibition" buildings built with a short life span in mind, fortunately one of the best, the "Grand Palais" still exists.

Yes the rebuilding of les halles in the 70s was a terrible thing, they destroyed a beautiful and functional space, and replaced it with an awkward and ugly structure that became a hive for crime and pick-pockets.

Luckily the city realised it was mistake, flattened the thing, and is now replacing it with a beautiful project: la canopée des halles.

Before (Les pavillons Baltard):




After (Les Halles) Scroll ->


Now (La Canopée des Halles)

Too bad they didn't have the imagination to at least rebuild the facade of the Empire- the new hotel not only looks totally boring but cheap as well. Not what you expect to find in a major Paris Blvd. but sadly these days it's possible.

Unfortunately, in the 21st century, the stupid destructions continues...
La Samaritaine, a large department store in Paris from the 19th-20th centuries owned by LVMH, has been partly destroyed in the name of modernity

Before (facade of 1852 in the Rue de Rivoli) :

Destruction (February 2014) :

After (project) :

Before/after :

That shit caused the destruction of the footbridge and several houses of the 17th-18th century at the following angle from the department store (Rue Baillet and Rue de la Monnaie)

no. the facade was built in the 1930's.
In the same block, the buildings that were built in the 17th century , the ones who have historical value, have not been destroyed.
