Paris to commemorate the 9/11 bombings

Hello guys!

While in the metro (french Tube) this morning, I read an article coming from a free daily paper '20 minutes' saying this:


Quote:
11 September

A replica of the Twin Towers

The association The French will never forget (TFWNF) will commemorate the 9/11 bombings by edifying a replica of the Twin Towers on the Droits de l'Homme square in Paris' 16th arrondissement. The first tower will be covered in names of the victims and the second one will display the support messages received worldwide. A laser lighting scheme coming from both towers are to illuminate the Eiffel Tower. According to some diplomat, quoted by Reuters, it will actually be 'the most important solidarity event in the world'.

I'll try to take some pictures...

Horrible!

If that association would be formed by French, then it's name would be "Les francais n'oublieront jamais".

Le fait que ca soit en anglais c'est l'indicatif de l'origine de l'association.

That is an audacious event, definitively a very tall monument ! It will be such a great symbol for the shared Franco-American values, the friendship between our countries and to remeber this tragedy.

Amine, it will take place on 11 september (but given the size of them, I guess they will be installed on saturday), on the Esplanade du Trocadéro, opposite the Eiffel Tower!


The 25m tall Twin Towers will stand where those people are, you won't miss them, so take it easy!

PS: as a temporary event, those Twin Towers will be removed afterwards.

Nonsense !

Anyway...Who cares (except people like you) about who created this Franco-American friendship association ?



Two little pics for you (e.g. I'm sure the US army forced the French one for such a symbol ):


(Bastille Day 2002: Cadets of West Point preceding the whole French army on the Champs-Élysées during the military parade.. In order to show the unconditional solidarity of the French people toward the American people after the 9/11 attacks, and of course in order to reiterate the centuries-old friendship between our two Nations)

Cool!

I thought Trocadero would be ruined for ever with this!

All those different heights confuse me...what is the REAL height to bear in mind then, 321m, not 307m?

Hope that's the very first version of the facade (no longer topical)...

So I guess the Les Halles rebuild is off the hook, then?
