Definitely. It was a great idea to have a station accessible from both sides of the river.

I hope not, the multicoloured glass foyer/canopy looks very sloppy from the street as the panels are misaligned (the area hidden in the above image by the buses). I walk past in disgust regularly.

If it was my building I'd have the contractors back to finish the job and (perhaps) it wouldn't happen in Paris?!
