To me, the best walk is also the most straightforward: hop on subway line 1 (yellow) and exit at La Defense (Grande Arche). From there, walk East in a straight line to the other La Defense subway station (Esplanade de La Defense) and enjoy the modern architecture in the process.

Hop on line 1 again and exit at Charles de Gaulle Etoile. You will be at the Arc de Triomphe. From there, keep walking East in a (roughly) straight line and you will progress through Champs-Elysées, Concorde Plaza, Tuileries Garden, Louvres Museum and Pyramid, various famous bridges and sights of the Grand Palais and Invalides (war museum with Napoleon's tomb, worth a detour), then to the Notre Dame cathedral, and you can push all the way to the fashion Marais neighborhood. This will take somewhere between 2 and 3 hours depending on how fast you walk.

This will cover most of Paris' hot architectural spots, both old and modern. The only thing you'll only see from a distance will be the Eiffel Tower, which is very crowded but also worth a detour.

I would highly recommand you a walk in the north east from stalingrad to pantin. Go to rue de tanger, avenue de Flandre, bassin de la villette, parc de la villette and pantin.
You could see that for exemple :

Paris is booming. BTW, I read that if the French government agrees for creation of a "Greater Paris" city, they will lose power in regards with urban planning. What will happen with Paris if that happens?

I think Paris should be more like Berlin, architecturally. It should build more Neotraditional architecture, less of this weird hypermodern Lady Gaga-style architecture.

When the greater Paris will happen (in 2016) governance will be more centralized, which means that the “communes” (cities outside actual Paris) will be intergrated in a great Paris Assembly
That means that Greater Paris will be in charge of general urabism, and the region and cities will have less power indeed.
Today the government has just a decision power for structural project, so I don’t think it will be very different after

Actually the objective is to become more efficient and more flexible, not to push out the government

I think in the long run will be so much more efficient in matter of urban plans and will integrate at some point the suburbs into the city and create a fresh dynamic. Paris will really boom when the greater Paris city authorities will start to plan how to link the different strong economic areas and do something with the physical circled scar (périphérique) which seperates inner city and outer city. Imo, will then be Paris unleashed. Will require strong political guidance though, from the city, for the city, and certainly not from the government, and that's something difficult to expect. Strenght is not really the first quality within our general politic landscape
