The Age 2: 1852-1973 version was the best IMO. It has this little melancholic feel to it, while at the same time it has some order.

Btw, what happened to the fountain on the Age 1 version, was it moved or destroyed?

The public inquiry for the tours Hermitage has been officially announced. It will take place from Sept. 12 to Oct. 12. It means the project is becoming more and more a reality.

Quote:
Du 12 septembre au 12 octobre, se tiendront les enquêtes publiques préalables aux autorisations de construire concernant le projet Hermitage à Courbevoie.

They built the facades before the buildings in Place Vendôme.
While facades are protected, it is not necessary the case of buildings inside.

This building is located Place Vendome by exemple.

Yes, but about the Ritz not only the façace and roofing are protected and classified as historic monument, but also several interior elements (such as the reception halls, several rooms, numerous decorative elements etc) in the "Place Vendôme part" of the Hotel.

No, don't worry ! They're simply going to make some refurbishments inside the building.

In the New York Times.

France: Paris Project Is Approved

New York Times
August 26, 2011

The government has approved plans for a $30 billion public works project dubbed “Le Grand Paris,” which President Nicolas Sarkozy hopes will prove a durable legacy of his leadership. The project, whose approval was noted in an official decree published Friday, will include the construction of more than 100 miles of automatic subway lines and 57 new stations, linking the suburbs around Paris in a massive figure 8. Mr. Sarkozy had aspired to remake the capital and solicited proposals from renowned architects, who offered extravagant visions of airborne parks, expansive greenery and futuristic towers. But his ambitions ran up against political and financial limits. The first new subways are planned to be in operation by 2018, according to the Société du Grand Paris, the state authority in charge of the project.

Will Baltard's pavilion at Les Halles be preserved or be dismantled like the 1979 version?

There is no pavillon Baltard anymore in les Halles, so there is nothing to preserve.

The Baltard's pavilion that I showed above was disassembled when they demolished the other pavilions in the 1970s, and reassembled in the eastern suburb of Nogent-sur-Marne, where you can still see it today (my picture). There is no Baltard's pavilion on site at Les Halles today.

I'm not sure that the video of our gorgeous & amazing 'Hexagon' was posted before so here it is...

Construction works ----> Early 2012

Delivery ---------------> 2015




Another interesting video of the presentation of the project to the residents, the Defense Minister Gérard Longuet was also there:
