Many thanks Brisavoine...

I had taken into account the building permit HERE but if you say so, fair enough, it doesn't make a huge difference anyway.

Yeah, but too bad it will be hidden by the surrounding towers when viewed from inner Paris. This tower built in the 8th arrondissement of Paris would have achieved world fame, like the Gherkin in London. It would have become a new symbol of Paris. But the same tower built in La Défense in a corner entirely surrounded by other skyscrapers will go unnoticed except by fans of architecture.

La Nuit Blanche 2012 rend hommage à la Seine

Les visiteurs vont pouvoir découvrir une «constellation» d'événements disséminés le long du fleuve, dans la nuit du 6 au 7 octobre, à l'occasion de la manifestion parisienne.

Pour la onzième année consécutive, les Parisiens vont pouvoir vivre une Nuit Blanche, du 6 au 7 octobre. Bertrand Delanoë, le maire de Paris, et Laurent Le Bon, le directeur artistique de la manifestation, ont dévoilé, mardi, un programme qui met la Seine à l'honneur.

Les différentes expositions, installations et autres performances artistiques seront réparties sur un circuit qui suivra le cours du fleuve, «traversant Paris d'ouest en est, de la colline de Chaillot à Ivry-sur-Seine», indique le site Internet de l'événement.

Aucun parcours n'est organisé ou conseillé par les organisateurs. Les visiteurs pourront déambuler à leur guise le long des berges, au gré des spectacles divers et variés. Aux Halles, les frères Ripoulain transformeront les grues du chantier en installations monumentales, tandis que Julio Le Parc changera l'obélisque de la Concorde, et que Michel Blazy s'emparera de la mairie du IVe arrondissement.

Visite inédite



Et, comme chaque année, les promeneurs nocturnes pourront visiter des monuments d'ordinaire fermés au public, comme l'hémicycle de l'Assemblée nationale ou la culée du pont Alexandre III. Quinze belvédères seront également accessibles, pour admirer Paris de manière inédite: le toit du musée du Quai Branly ou la Bibliothèque François Mitterrand.

Les franciliens qui résident en dehors de la capitale ne sont pas oubliés puisque nombre d'événements se produisent dans la grande couronne.
Le programme complet des événements est disponible sur le site de la Nuit Blanche.

Maison Edouard Francois establish a strong new image in the triangle d'or

A set of seven buildings including real and pastiche Haussmannian styles, as well as a building dating from the 1970's, formed a nearly complete urban block in the Triangle d'or (the corner of the Champs-Elysées and the Avenue Georges V). The restaurant Le Fouquet's is the flagship property of the Barrière company. The goal was to unify these disparate elements and to make it the next parisian "Palace", thus establishing a strong new image.

In this sensitive context, both historic and ostentatious, the Maison Edouard François invented the concept of Moulé-Troué (Cast and punctured). It replicated the authentic Haussmannian facade of the block. It then applied it onto the facades, like a bas-relief from Petra. The molded casting is then pierced by large openings that are completely independent of the Haussmannian lines but very relevant to the plans and the visual comfort of the rooms. The courtyard is colonized by a forest of vertical aluminum branches. A hanging garden on the terrace of the first floor offers enchanting scenery. The new interior layout achieves the expected level of luxury.

Since its opening, the hotel has become an essential fixture in Paris.

Yep, Stalingrad!
A square and a Metro station named in honor of the heroic Soviet people and in order to cause heart attacks on German tourists in Paris (at least on the older ones), Ja!
Not to mention that the stations/streets named after Germany/German cities were renamed in 1914... And since then, they kept their new names. (including the former "Allemagne" station which is/was next to the Stalingrad Station on Ligne 2 )
