Paris ranked 4th Capital City in the world, in a report done by PwC, a jump from last year, after being ranked 8th.
Paris is ranked 2nd worldwide, ahead of London and New York in terms of economic power. Indeed, it has a higher number of people working in finance and intellectual services than London and New York.
It is ranked 3rd worldwide in terms of innovation, and 1st in terms of quality of life. It is noted that the city has the best transportation system, which is very dense.

The fourth pic looks like a render. It's the first time I had doubts about a photo
Really beautiful building, looks very unique and actually seems smaller than it is.

Well, no it doesn't...the new building is a nice addition but the "islamic" collection of the Louvre really sucks actually...when you visit it you get the feeling of visiting a flea market antiquaire...just a hotch potch of small objects vaguely coming from central asia. Lame.
I suspect they have the idea of using the upper level to showcase pieces coming from their partnership with Abu Dhabi, modern arab art, possibly...or else...
Whatever.

The student residence in Porte de Pantin is really seriously cool....
I wish I was still a student
Wooden outdoor structures don't age well though...might not look very shiny in a year or two...

The Vincennes zoo carries on its transformation

Quote:
Four years after its closure to the public, one year after the start of work & one year & a half before its reopening, the Vincennes zoo is having a full transformation. The highlight will be an immense tropical glasshouse whose construction is coming along rapidly. The emblematic zoological park of the Capital has welcomed around 90 million tourists since its creation in 1934.
Here are the latest photos of the park's work:


The fake 65m rock under renovation




The fake heated rocks for lions


The Giraffe's building




The giant aviary




The tropical glasshouse


The sea-lions & penguins's den

That's in-Seine: Plans for inflatable bridge in Paris



VISITORS to Paris could soon be bouncing across the River Seine on a bizarre inflatable bridge.

Architects have entered the odd crossing into a competition to come up with a new interactive structure in the City of Love.

The bouncy bridge would be made up of three inflatable trampolines, each filled with 3,700 cubic meters of air.

Computer generated images show members of the public flying through the air as they take in famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower.
