had its origins elsewhere, was first cast in romance form in France: the Round Table, the
tragic love story of Lancelot and Guinevere, and the notion of the Grail quest were all French
innovations."

For old Paris I recommend checking out charpentier's guide in the Medieval Paris thread. It starts with this post.

There's quite a lot of stuff there for a short stay like yours so if you want to stay in one area my recommendation is Le Marais: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Marais Right near it I would also recommend the Saint-Paul area and the Saint-Louis island.

For modernist & contemporary architecture I don't know if there's a particular area. La Defènse offers a great skyline but I don't rate it highly as a place to visit. Instead I would recommend visiting a few of the most important buildings regardless of where they lie. My favourites off the top of my head are the Centre Pompidou and Musée du Quai-Branly.

You need to check out my thread.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1669320

I'd suggest starting in Place des Vosges and going through Place de la Bastille towards Île de la Cité and Île Saint-Louis and then just wandering from one side of the river to the other.

Hi Joey and Welcome!
The central business district in the gold triangle of Paris is interesting: you will find historical and modern building (Saint Lazare/Opéra/Champs Elysées district).

Uploaded with ImageShack.com

Another district I love is less touristic but very dense and full of various architecture, this is the south east Paris, close to the National Library.

Uploaded with ImageShack.com

But also many places such as Montparnasse tower, Maison de la Radio & Beaugrenelle Mall (close to Eiffel Tower), La Vilette & La Géode (North east) La Défense financial district or Georges Pompidou Center (district of Les Halles)

Well… As Logica (whose head office is in the tower) has been bought by CGI Group, the tower's name changed as well.

Been walking down boulevard des Italiens and the Opera neighborhood ... if this is called "architecture" then all the rest should be called "unsignificant" ... trully brillant, unique in space and time it was built ..
