"giant road" ? Stop reading propaganda . This is old stuff dating from the last mayor election, the "study" being provocative and unfortunately full of lies.

Avenue Foch is one of the most prestigious streets in Paris, Haussmann designed it to connect Place de l'Etoile to the Bois de Boulogne. It is indeed 120m wide (compared to the 70m of the Champs Elysees), but the road itself is nearly twice narrower than the Champs, as it is flanked by sidewalks for pedestrians, riding paths for horsemen, shaded by rows of chestnut trees and decorated along its full length by ornamental lawns and gardens (6.62 hectares).

Of course I know this, I just think the vegitation of the gardens is ugly. honestly, they just need to renovate it a little, this project looks weird.

Hmm, I don't remember this building being in the materials I've seen about the extension of the Cité Universitaire.

If modernism is the architecture of tomorrow than we are destined for a very bleak and dull future.

You mean it is ruining that?

There is not much to ruin, is there?
The project clearly bring a better mobility into the space.
What I don't like is this creeping vegetation everywhere (this is almost mandatory now). Paris is not the countryside. For the rest, it looks good to me.

What are these towers next to DUO? Quartier Masséna?Hopefully they'll destroy those. Those are probably the ugliest towers in Paris aside for Montparnasse.
