Ca sera bien, cette place a un très gros potentiel ! Elle n'a pas l'air si connue que ça pourtant Avec tout cet espace piéton, ça va devenir un gros lieu de ralliement et de flanerie.

it wil be cool

There's a whole world outside Paris & London, you know .

Speaking of which, the new Paris Christmas tree looks like the traditional St. Peter's Square one in Vatican City/Rome, which is generally very nice and pretty big/tall as well (around 30 meters)...at least that was the case each year I've been in Rome during the Christmas Holidays.

I deliberately refered to London as the only european Xmas tree exceeding 30m tall that I'm aware of is actually located in Trafalgar Square (offered by Norway every year).

Nice transformation, BUT: Please don't tell me they're actually removing the historical lampposts around the memorial!?

Yes, but as you can see on the other pictures, they're only moved on the square. There'll be a fountain around the memorial.

Generally in Milan, in our Duomo Square, we have a 48-50 meters Christmas tree (offered by Italian Alps). Every year, it's always higher than Rome, Paris, London, New York...
But this year, for the first time, we have a very short tree... I don't know why, somebody says: it's the crisis!

Tower FIRST to give the weather forecasts

Quote:
Since yesterday, the Tower FIRST (Paris' tallest office tower), has a new lighting scheme announcing the following day's weather forecasts via a color code. Yellow/Orange (sunny); Blue (a 'drop' effect meaning rainy); Grey (a 'mist' effect meaning overcast); White (a 'flake' effect meaning snowy).

On national events, there will also be different lighting schemes (May 1st, May 8th, Bastille Day, November 11th). For the great sports performances or any other event connected to our country, the tower FIRST will show a Blue White Red lighting.

Finally, for all the festive events, 'Nuits Blanches', the holiday period, Olympic Games opening ceremony, World Cup opening ceremony...the Tower FIRST will twinckle in color to reply to the Eiffel Tower.

Left (sunny) / Right (rainy)


Bastille Day


Six different scenarii

Quote:
Led Used : Icolor Flex LMX (last generation led)
Lifetime : 50 000 hours = 5 years and 7 months if lit 24h/24
Light spot number : 2 221
Bar number : 288
Total linear installed: 750 m
Dimension of 1 feather : 7 x 2,50 m
Feather number
: 96 lit feathers
Electric consumption : 8.75kw (or 3 x 16 amper) equivalent to 3 irons (53 x 0.75 x 220)
Lighting power : 6 600w, 3w/LED
Power adapter : 53 PDS 60ca X 0.75a/220V = 8.75Kw
Led bars : 96 Univers DMX : 18 Controlers : grand ma lighting
Horizontal power cord: 3 600m of LED electric power
Control parameters : 6 663
Control of each power cord : 1 000m
Vertical fibre optics: 250 m
Programs number : 3 000

Note that 2 neon signs are to be installed in the next few weeks, that of EULER HERMES will be located on top of the tower, & that of ERSNT & YOUNG will sit in the middle.

The new Grand Angle "mall" that opened few weeks ago.
It is not really a mall but more a pedestrian street, a good revitalization of the center of Montreuil (It wasn't dead but lacked of retail space).

Etoile Lilas Cinema / Hardel et Le Bihan Architectes

Architects: Hardel et Le Bihan Architectes
Location: Paris, France
Architect In Charge: Magali Lamoureux
Area: 5,527 sqm
Year: 2012

Since the Périphérique ring road was covered (a decision taken in 2000), the ambition of local authorities and residents has been to make the Porte des Lilas Joint Development Zone not just an outer limit of Paris, but an attractive centre in the East of Paris. The open section of the Périphérique and the nuisances it engenders have been replaced by a new, bustling neighbourhood which hosts a range of housing, activities and parks

The Porte de Lilas now stands out as an example in the development of Metropolitan Paris. The Cinéma Étoile, designed by the Hardel & Le Bihan architecture agency, puts the finishing touch on the transformation of this site and makes up for the scarcity of cinemas in the East of Paris.

Located on the Place du Maquis du Vercors, and a stone’s throw from the Rue de Belleville and the Avenue Gambetta, it serves as a linchpin to the neighbourhood, echoing a deeply polarized urban context. With the Cirque Electrique and the Jardin Serge-Gainsbourg for neighbours, it is an active participant in the renovation of this neighbourhood in Paris’ 20th arrondissement.

Such a cool idea for Tower FIRST. Simple, yet attractive

'Louis Vuitton Foundation': official website updated

Quote:
Frank Gehry has designed a building with a strength & an innovative spirit that symbolise the objectives of the Fondation Louis Vuitton pour la création. This edifice is the very first artistic statement of the foundation.

Frank Gehry's initial sketches reveal a building in motion



The architect imagined a magnificent vessel among the trees

Quote:
"With the Bois de Boulogne and the Jardin d'Acclimatation, the idea of a glass pavilion at once became a must. It seemed to me out of place to design a solid object: my quest was to express the idea of transparency." Frank Gehry

The glass roof os the Grand Palais, a symphony of curves & transparency, served as one of Frank Gehry's sources of inspiration.


Quote:
"Galleries connected by walkways, escalators & staircases inside the glass structure will allow visitors to take in the view of the surrounding woods & the landscape beyond."
Frank Gehry




Official website (great videos...)

The Louxor movie theater reminds me the one in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.
