We should remain very cautious about Hermitage ... nothing will be done until the agreement with ASL is reached.

I'm pretty sure it's all been approved as they have already relocated people.

Nope, there are still around 15 families left in the building, these ones are determined to stay, they will never go...the only option is to kick them out I'm afraid...

Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe: Historic Longchamp bets on futuristic $145M grandstand


Quote:
(CNN)It hosts one of the most glamorous days on the sporting calendar, but Paris' Longchamp racecourse has long been in need of a makeover.

Next month, following the conclusion of Sunday's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, work will start on a project that owner France Gallop hopes will transform the appearance of the historic horse racing venue and secure its financial future.


Architect Dominique Perrault's futuristic new stand design incorporates "transparent shelves," replacing two rather tired main grandstands.

Erected in the early 1960s, the stands have always felt slightly at odds with their surroundings in the Bois de Boulogne, an 850-hectare public park on the French capital's western fringes.

The new building and overall redesign is costing €130 million ($145 million) and will feel less alien in the setting, Perrault insists.


Much of Perrault's previous work has focused on harmonizing the relationship between buildings and the natural environment.

His design for the French National Library, completed in 1989, incorporates a sunken courtyard populated with trees.

Perrault's EWHA Women's University campus in Seoul, South Korea, also blurs the lines between city spaces and natural landscapes, creating a single area that accommodates both study and recreation.

"The building disappears -- it has some roots and these roots connect the building with nature," he says.

France Gallop, French horse racing's governing body, is banking on the new pared-down facility to attract more racegoers year-round rather than just during "Arc" weekend, when 50,000 punters pack the stands for the world's richest turf event.

Building work means that next year's race will be run at Chantilly, 50 kilometers north of Paris, before returning to the newly configured Longchamp in 2017.

no. in the early 1990s there was a project of a 425m tower in la defense by jean nouvel that was canceled after the 1990s real estate bubble collapsed

France decrees new rooftops must be covered in plants or solar panels

Rooftops on new buildings built in commercial zones in France must either be partially covered in plants or solar panels, under a law approved on Thursday.

Green roofs have an isolating effect, helping reduce the amount of energy needed to heat a building in winter and cool it in summer.

They also retain rainwater, thus helping reduce problems with runoff, while favouring biodiversity and giving birds a place to nest in the urban jungle, ecologists say.

The law approved by parliament was more limited in scope than initial calls by French environmental activists to make green roofs that cover the entire surface mandatory on all new buildings.

The Socialist government convinced activists to limit the scope of the law to commercial buildings.

The law was also made less onerous for businesses by requiring only part of the roof to be covered with plants, and giving them the choice of installing solar panels to generate electricity instead

It may be 'creative', but I doubt much effort was put into designing it.
