Other projects:
Restructuring the site Rose de Cherbourg where Jean Nouvel's Hekla tower (200 to 230 metres) will (should) be constructed. The Rose de Cherbourg is an impractical suspended highway interchange, which will be converted into suspended gardens, and the traffic will be moved to ground level. This will facilitate the movement from Puteaux to La Defense for both cars and pedestrians, and it will free up space for the Hekla Tower which will bring more office space, student accommodation, and help bridge the gap between the two areas.

Tour Trinity: This is a project to squeeze a 150 metre tower on top of a busy road in between the CNIT and tour Areva. The site has not seen much activity for over 7 months, I don’t know what is blocking it.




Renovation of Immeuble E+

Liberty of movement, transport a lot of things in the same time, listening music without awfull things on your ears (that can impact the efficiency of your earing), far more security for us and espacially for children (because of some unfrequentable people in the Metro), price lower and lower (thanks to decreasing fuel consommation, despite crazy parking prices in this bobo city), more and more secure with time in case of accident, more and more ecological, no strike of train drivers....
In conclusion, cars have their places in big cities, and the mains arguments anti-automobile are falling one by one.
Have you got any source or is that just your personal unreliable rant?
Personal unreliable rant ?

-Liberty of movement: At last, there is no metro station / bus / tram to every house in the world. So common transport oblige us to move on foot, unlike cars.
-Time: common transport means that we have to wait for the train....if there is no strike (like in France everytime...). Moreover, cars are faster than bikes in almost every cities (not in big cities with trafic jam).

To listen music....well, lets compare:

Radio:




No radio:



Oh, but you can buy a 800 euros Iphone with a 300 euros Beat headphone to get the same sound quality.


Security: Despite the fact that an accident of metro is very uncommon, people (and especially women) don't feel in security for 8/10 of them, concerning others people...
http://www.20minutes.fr/societe/1472...securite-metro
And bike on large ways.....bad idea for security.
In a car, you are alone with your family.

Cars use less fuel with new models that develop and pollute less.

An example with Peugeot 206, 207, and 208 comparaison, with approximatly the same power:
206: http://www.fiches-auto.fr/essai-peug...-16v-_-110.php --> 8L/100km
207: http://www.fiches-auto.fr/essai-peug...-vti-_-120.php --> 7,5L/100km
208: http://www.fiches-auto.fr/essai-peug...-hdi-_-115.php --> 6L/100km

Same thing for every car company of course. The result is less money going in the fuel tank.

For the capacity of transportation:

A car:



In the bus:



.....or just simple bags.

And last but not least, transporting things by bike ?



That is developpment.

SO, no, cars are not only 20th century, but with a very large freedom of movement, less consumption and pollution (until 0 thanks to electric), more security with MUCH more stricts criteria in crash tests, and possibility of deplacing many things easily, cars have all the future, and their introduction in major cities should be facilitated.

Laser surgery restores Sainte-Chapelle stained glass window to Gothic glory

Seven years’ work on Gothic chapel in Paris finished to mark anniversary of birth of Louis IX who commissioned it to house his collection of religious relics

One of the Gothic wonders of the medieval world, the stained glass windows at Sainte-Chapelle in central Paris have been restored after seven years of painstaking work.

The restoration was finished to mark the 800th anniversary of the birth of King Louis IX, who commissioned the chapel in the mid 13th century to house his collection of religious relics, including what was believed to be Christ’s crown of thorns and part of the cross.

The work involved dismantling the huge windows into small panels and cleaning them with lasers. An outside “skin” of glass has been moulded on to the original windows to protect them from traffic pollution, without altering their look.

The chapel is one of the earliest surviving buildings of the Capetian royal palace on the Ile de la Cité, along with the Conciergerie.

The two-level building, which was built in just seven years in the 1240s, is a small but spectacular example of the Rayonnant style of Gothic architecture, with little stonework and 15 huge stained glass panels and a rose window added a century later.

The 6,458 sq ft of stained glass windows in the upper chapel illustrate biblical scenes from both testaments. Overwhelmingly deep red and blue, they depict 1,130 biblical figures.

Also in the borrough of Gennevilliers lies the T2G (Theatre of Gennevilliers) which is a highly reputed theatre and a national centre for dramatic creation, which if I'm not wrong means that it is funded through national funds from the ministry of culture. Anyway, the building is fugly from the outside but in recent times the interiour spaces, especially the receiving spaces, have been refurbished by the set designer Patrick Bouchain. I think the result is pretty fantastic:

The same architectual practice with the project of the redevelopment of the Gennevilliers conservatory is responsable for the restoration and refurbishment of the "Le Beffroi" cultural centre in Montrouge, a beautiful art deco venue. It's where Minato_ku lives!

http://www.blondroux.com/projets/montrouge-cc.php

































The centre now disposes of two spectacle halls, a grand space of over 1000sm, 9 multi-use rooms, receiving spaces and logistical spaces.

State of the tower projects planned for La Defense:

- Tour Trinity (161m): The site preparation has begun, currently the construction and architecture companies are in a negotiation phase which should end in June, and construction is planned to begin in August-Septembre.

- Tours Hermitage Plaza (320m x2): Last legal battles should end in the summer, If this happens according to plan, destruction of Les Damiers residential complex will begin in septembre/ octobre of this year, and construction of the towers will begin directly after.

- Tour Air2 (203m): Demolition of Aurore tower is planned to begin before the end of the year (although it has been pushed back previously).

- Tour Hekla (220m): The rose de cherbourg is a precursor to the Hekla tower project and has begun. The re-routing of the traffic has begun, and the public spaces layout should begin in 2016. The Hekla tower has submitted its application for a building permit this month. The expected delivery date of the tower is programmed for 2020.

- Tour M2 Saint-Gobain (174m): Submitted application for a building permit on 26 May, it should be awarded on the 26 June. Construction could begin as early as the first trimestre of 2016.

- Tour Phare (297m): All legal battles have ended in favour of the project, the only remaining obstacle is the mayor of the neighbouring town that is against the temporary destruction of a bridge between La Defense and Courbevoie. The project is in a very critical position right now as the developer only has 2-3 years to commercialise and then begin construction of the tower before the construction permit expires. Furthermore the developer is about to start building another tower (Trinity) very close to phare which may hinder the commercialisation of Phare.

- Tour Alto (150m): Construction was pushed back to 2016 due to legal battles about the already overcrowded metro station close to the tower, and the shape and height of the building which will cast a large shadow on one side and overheat the ground level on the other side. construction was originally planned for 2014.

- Tour Ava (140m): Project pushed back to 2016 due to legal battles.

A rough map I made of all of these projects using Google Maps:

https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer...8.kF6iQ0FuDMaI



Blue: Towers or buildings
White: Slab at the D2 tower level
Beige: Slab at the esplanade level
Orange: Stairs or escalators
