You're welcome Kony.

I'm not with you though when you go: 'BUT very difficult to apprehend an article when you dont know : date, source, context etc...' indeed the date clearly is mentioned in red (10/09/10), so is the source (cf link diapasonmag.fr), regarding what you call 'context', I'm not sure to understand what you mean...

Thanks Brisavoine for those very nice pics! I love the 4 blue-white-red cranes in the middle ground, in the next few weeks, we'll be seeing the gorgeous 'Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation' 's silhouette...

Et dire que certains sujets de sa majesté osent traiter FIrst de "monstruosité"...mais bon, je les ai remis à leur place sur le thread du Pinnacle.

The tower Montparnasse will shine at night

Thanks Romain, but your link isn't working so here's the article:

Quote:
MONUMENT - floodlighting to start in 2011...

The tower Montparnasse intends to compete with her big sister, the Eiffel Tower.

From 2011, the monument of the 15th arrondissement will also light up every night. The mission of the agency Light, charged with the stage design: 'Re-make more dynamic the picture of the tower and make the new nocturnal emblem of Greater Paris'.

Heartbeats in the top floor

The agency imagined a lighting marking bones and top floor of the tower. Every hour, the summit of the building will be enlivened slow heartbeats. «For events, this technology will be able to be put in the disposition of the artists. Thousands of colours will be possible. »The whole thanks to LED, who uses thirty times less electricity than ’«lighting prestige» installed in 1970s. After midnight, illuminations will be in favour "wakefulness", less intense, to accomplish energy savings.

Icing on the cake, group, which costs 1 million euro, will ask for no service. Plan must be introduced in Parisian authorities in the weeks which come, for an implementation «at the earliest for the Holiday of music». The public will be able to have a foretaste of the tower new generation from Sleepless night, on October 2nd: she will receive then a sound and visual creation.

The "Philharmonie de Paris" on hold



Quote:
Presidential major project, the construction of the Philharmonie de Paris is at a standstill. The funding from the state are waiting for this great concert hall symphony.

Not a worker, not a bulldozer, not a crane in sight. The huge hole dug at the foot of the Cité de la Musique in the Parc de la Villette in the Porte de Pantin (XIX) is desperately calm.

Yet that would be built, in 2012, one of the major cultural projects of Nicolas Sarkozy , the Philharmonie de Paris , a magnificent jewel designed by Jean Nouvel to house the symphony concert hall which lacks Paris .

Last January, the president came on the spot for his wishes to the cultural world, and reaffirmed its support for this project.

But since the spring and digging foundations, the site has not resumed. A year of negotiations with companies ,"Things are on track, ensures Januel Patrick, director of the association that manages the project. The assembly has been more complicated than expected, it took assemble competent companies capable of building the project of Jean Nouvel requires feats. The negotiations lasted over a year with business, but here, the contract is being finalized. In addition, it provides that the building will be maintained for fifteen years. "

But behind the optimism of the supporters of the project, it seems that the state is reluctant to provide its financing. Of the € 200 million expected at launch, 45% come from the mayor of Paris, 10% of the region and 45% of the state. If the first two players have reaffirmed their commitment, state participation is expected. Prime Minister and especially the Ministry of Economy does not wish to release the funds in times of crisis, and not only would the express written agreement of the Elysee. The reticence is even bigger than a budget overrun of 5% (minimum) or 15% to 20% is already considered.

Meanwhile, the government began to show mounting criticism from the cultural, financial furious mass engulfed in the Philharmonic when the state begins cutting in the credits anywhere. "The Philharmonic is more than a theater is a Centre Pompidou music education with a pole, orchestras in residence, exhibition spaces ... "This will be a locomotive for the world of music," says Patrice Januel.

Last week, the board of directors of the Philharmonic has approved its operating budget, but no investment. "We are ready to meet our financial commitments," repeats Christophe Girard, deputy (PS) mayor of Paris in charge of culture. Now remains to convince the State. One thing is certain: there will be at least a year late and now the delivery date is announced for late 2013.

The 'Damiers' began to empty in Courbevoie

27/09/2010




Quote:
There are only three tenants in the first building of the Damiers.This residence, which will be discussed tonight at the City Council, will soon be replaced by the Twin Towers Hermitage.

Aurelian and Stephanie * have already rejected six or seven proposals "too small", "too far", "no balcony ..." This couple can not bring himself to leave his studio Damiers. A studio where it is cramped, sure. But with a terrace as vast as housing , facing south, without vis-à-vis, just before the Pont de Neuilly.

In March 2008, like all other tenants of the whole of the 1970s, placed along the Seine at the foot of La Defense, he learned that his landlord wanted to sell the property to a developer to do new tricks. Today, these two are the latest - with a neighbor - to live in the "Infra", the buildings down from the pads.

A sensitive case

"I work in the seventeenth and sixth arrondissements of Paris . I refused to go into the twentieth, La Garenne-Colombes, or in the north of the Hauts-de-Seine, says Aurelian employee of a computer company. We do not want to go up Iris, La Defense, since small apartments have no balcony and the building is of poorer quality. Here, we could not hear our neighbours. » "

This sensitive issue returns tonight to the agenda of elected Courbevoie. Because the mayor ( UMP ) will offer the elected authority to sign a new demolition permit for the "Infra", one of three buildings of Checkers.

Eventually, the Hermitage company plans to build on the site released two towers of 323 m (91 floors), the highest in the business district, with performances very high-end luxury hotel, luxury apartments, offices overlooking the Arc de Triomphe ... Since late 2009, Logis-Transportation initiated the procedure of relocating the 250 families. In just under a year, half of the tenants accepted the proposals of the lessor. In the Anjou building, located just above the Infra, 43 out of 68 families were relocated. Among the remaining 25, some do not even want to hear about resettlement. And in the Bretagne residence, only 44 tenants have agreed to leave, 85 are under discussion with the landlord and 15 refused to budge. "This operation can be done in increments. It is not possible to relocate 250 people at the same time, "explained the prefect of Hauts-de-Seine early June, ensuring that it remained very vigilant on the conditions of the relocation.

Roland Garros at Disney?

Marne-la-Vallee is one of four sites in the Paris vying to host the tournament at Roland Garros and the headquarters of the French Tennis Federation (FFT).The strengths of this application.


Located between the A 4 (left) and the speedway that leads to Disneyland Paris, here is the site of 35 hectares that could host the tournament at Roland Garros in 2016.

Quote:
"We won the first set for the credibility of the project on the future. The ball is now in the court of the Federation of French tennis, "Arnaud de Belenet launched yesterday, Mayor UMP Bailly-Romainvilliers and chairman of the public planning Epafrance. Wednesday came in discreetly in Bailly-Romainvilliers Jean Gachassin, President of TFF, was "seduced by the quality of the project" supported by local, Epafrance and the department of Seine-et-Marne.

To play in the big leagues, Marne-la-Vallee will surpass his four rivals, three commuters - Evry (Essonne), Versailles (Yvelines), Gonesse (Val-d'Oise) - Paris and the current Roland Garros.

A property of 35 ha. The plot belongs to Epamarne. It is located in the hamlet of Bailly, the site of the Priory, between Nature Village, the future complex of tourist residence of Euro Disney and Pierre & Vacances and theme parks of Disneyland Paris. TFF become the owner of this surface, very large compared to the 8 acres it leases in Paris today.

A capacity of 60,000 seats. This is double the current capacity of the equipment in Paris."The total would include 55 tennis courts, three clay courts, explains Pascal Berteaud, CEO Epafrance. A retractable roof would play in the rain and at night. "In Paris, the stage has 24 courts, all discovered, including 5 for training.

A city of tennis. The project goes further by offering a sports clinic, a fitness center, a series of restaurants, a federal academy to train players in residence, about twenty training sites in heart of a sports park landscaped. All housed in the arena, these buildings have closed bleachers for spectators.

An investment of € 600 million. The FFT can provide € 100 million and borrow another 350. It remains to find an economic model that identifies the missing € 150 million.

Additional own revenue. The very good range of hotels would take place on part of 10 acres, allowing the FFT to generate additional revenue on its host institutions. The site is designed as an open space that can host other sporting events, cultural shows.

Not one euro of Commons. The political actors of the department swear their gods that no consideration is required by the FFT. If this is the guarantee of their debt. In other words, unlike the Formula 1 project planned in Val-d'Europe and overturned, it would not require municipalities to put their hands in the pocket.

An unparalleled accessibility. Side Transport, the site borders the nearby A4 motorway and the TGV and RER train station. It provides a tram to the viewers of the RER A to the stage, coupled with a transit in separate lanes on the A4 motorway. Part of this infrastructure is already formally noted in the Village Nature. As for traffic and parking of cars, the hamlet of Bailly, this is not the Porte d'Auteuil.

Possible first tournament in 2016. A first review of applications is expected in early November. The final choice of the FFT should be announced in February 2011. If Marne-la-Vallee won the jackpot in 2016, the third most watched sporting event in the world after the Olympics and the football World Cup, could take place in Bailly-Romainvilliers.
