Honnestly I can't make an opinion before seeing it on a large scale.

Montparnasse Tower: new lighting scheme on 21 March 2012

The new lighting scheme, which was to be unveiled last summer before being eventually postponed owing to the complexity of its setting up, will now be unveiled on 31 March 2012. Work has started last august, and is mainly done in the night-time. Furthermore, it is said that Regis Clouzet has designed that scheme taking into account a possible repairing of the facades which could incorporate a second skin.



Here's a part of a very interesting article in french found by Maza:

Quote:
[...]«Les copropriétaires investissent beaucoup dans le désamiantage. Cette illumination a pour but de montrer que Montparnasse est en renouvellement», souligne Régis Clouzet. Le concepteur lumière précise avoir imaginé un dispositif prenant en compte une possible réfection des façades, lesquelles pourraient être constituées d'une deuxième peau.

«Il n'est pas question d'usure visuelle», poursuit-il. Un travail sur les rythmes, la couleur et l'intensité caractérise la proposition où chaque passage d'heure sera l'occasion d'une animation et d'une pulsation au sommet. «De 20h00 à minuit la tour aura changé d'apparence», promet le concepteur.

Votés «à l'unanimité moins une voix» en décembre 2010, les travaux ont débuté en août 2011. «L'accès aux angles, souvent occupés par des bureaux de direction, est compliqué. De plus, nous travaillons la nuit», explique Régis Clouzet. S'il fut un temps question d'une inauguration en juin 2011 puis lors de la nuit blanche, une nouvelle date vient d'être décidée. Rendez-vous le 21 mars 2012[...]

Norway Oil Fund Buys $396 Million of Paris Real Estate in Venture With Axa

Norway’s $570 billion oil fund and Axa SA (CS)’s real estate asset management unit agreed to buy three Paris office buildings for 290 million euros ($396 million), their second portfolio acquisition in the French capital.

The venture is purchasing the properties from SEB ImmoInvest, a Frankfurt-based fund that’s selling assets to return money to investors after halting redemptions. The buildings, which are fully occupied, generate a rental income equivalent to 6 percent of the purchase price, according to a statement today.

Norway’s Government Pension Fund Global got approval to start investing in real estate last year and plans to acquire more than $25 billion of properties to help boost investment returns. The fund made its first purchase earlier this year with a 452 million-pound ($720 million) acquisition of a 25 percent stake in London’s Regent Street. In July, the sovereign-wealth fund bought a 50 percent stake in seven Paris properties owned by an Axa fund for 702 million euros.

The three properties being purchased from SEB ImmoInvest (S3EA) are 28-32 avenue Victor Hugo, near the Arc de Triomphe; 99 avenue de France in the 13th district, or arrondissement; and Le Prelude, an office building in the suburb of Boulogne- Billancourt, according to the statement.

The Norwegian fund gets revenue from taxes on oil and gas, ownership of petroleum fields and dividends from its 67 percent stake in Statoil ASA, Norway’s largest energy company.

Nope ! (not more than the numerous previous times )

this Palace won't going to be rebuilt. Every two years or so indeed, since the early 60s, this "info" shows up.. and then...nothing happens. It's just the "Second Empire Academy" & the recently created "Comité pour la reconstruction des Tuileries" who are still dreaming about that and want to make the news from time to time, nothing more IMHO.



here is a similar article from 2008:

telerama.fr/Faut-il reconstruire le palais des Tuileries, incendié en 1871 ?


Another one from 2006:

lefigaro.fr/Tuileries, un pas de plus vers la reconstruction


from 2004:

latribunedelart.com/faut-il reconstruire les tuileries

etc, etc, etc, etc...

We'll see. The Paris city hall is said not to be against it. The Louvre Museum would greatly benefit from the new surfaces, and above all it would give work to thousands of traditional craftsmen whose jobs are in danger (plus it would save the stone quarries in Greater Paris).

In my opinion what they should do first is build a temporary structure, a scaffolding covered with a giant painted screen, like they did in Berlin with the imperial palace, to let everybody see how it would look in real life if the palace was rebuilt. Leave the scaffolding for a whole year, to let Parisians time to get accustomed to it and see if they like it in the end.

It would be much better than starting construction right away. Besides, authorizations for a temporary scaffolding would be much easier to get.

This is what they did in Berlin with the imperial palace before taking the decision to rebuild it:

Difference is Berlin was half destroyed during WW2 + French state already owns 50 % of all the european historical monuments + kind of crisis times + some people likes the current layout

Closing the Louvre's court would be a disaster. The fact the palace is open on the garden of the Tuileries offers a unique perspective and gives the opportunity for great walks on shiny days. This would no longer be the case if a barrier is built between both.

What this means is that the Pyramid would be blocked behind 4 walls. Not a good idea at all.


The end of the 19th century was a fantastic era of growth for Paris. As a matter of fact, it is its undisputable financial golden age. All monuments which had been destroyed during the Commune have been rebuilt again during that period. All except the Tuileries. And there's an obvious reason for this: the Louvre is not a defensive medieval fortress. Closing it behind 4 stone walls serve no purpose.

It would make the place claustrophobic and mineral.

Would be fantastic indeed...furthermore, they've retained the Palace's plans (measurements etc), the appropriate materials are still available, & 300 millions € is some important amount of money, yes, but compared to a random tower, it's very affordable for a city like Paris, the city would benefit from this prestigious project, that's for sure. I hope that it will come true in the forthcoming years.

PS: your wrap idea Brisavoine is a very good one imo.

I don't like the idea of closing the pyramid either.
