I wish Le Triangle was built closer to La Defense.

A nice example of rehabilitation for industrial stuff : Grands Moulins de Pantin, now headquarters of the BNP Paribas Securities Services.

I like the purple colour lights in LD on that skyscraper... it is much needed! They should have it there all the time.

I joke I joke.

This open space in Paris is very nice. It is bigger than Trafalgar anyway so it is not right to draw comparisons really.

Guys (Axelferis among others), please stop adding fuel to the fire, that's childish & boring...

This lighting scheme on top of FIRST tower is actually permanent since late 2012. That's a meteorological station & is lit up from 5pm up to 7am the next day (if I remember well)with a different color to indicate what the weather will be like (see diagram below). It was needed indeed as the distinctive top was lamentably left in the dark so far.

Perhaps although, I think for Napoleon he should be a bit shorter

Jex, thank you for this information. It is a great addition this lighting scheme!

I think more towers in LD should have something like this! It adds a bit more variety to it all instead of just boring yellow interior lighting in the windows.

I know that here in London they are making the tall buildings have colourful lighting schemes.. as long as it remains tasteful obviously.

Tribunal de Grande Instance des Batignolles

New High Court of Paris.
From now, it's on the Île de la Cité (Notre Dame de Paris, Hôtel-Dieu ...).
Expected in 2016-2017 ... the highest building in Paris locality (commune ?) since Tour Montparnasse, it will go to be 45 years between them

Ok sorry for the off topic but Napoleon being short is actually a myth. He was 169 cm that was the average at the time.


To stay on topic. That lighting scheme just doesn't look great, but i really love the fact that there's purpose tide to it as well! Just like London, Paris seems to be doing great with its new projects.

What happened to the Dunkirk to Paris canal project which was launched by Sarko? Did it die after Hollande's election or is it still an actual plan?

It is the presentation of the project on the official website of the French Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, the 10/26/12. So I think it's still in draf but they have to talk about the money, the impacts on the french commercial ports, ecology ....
