I agree. To think of Paris' beautiful architectural past and to see how far they've fallen...it's tragic.

NOOO why would they do this. The great part of this area is the when there are so many cars and at rush hour, it's just magnificent seeing it busy, but to pedestrianise it!! wtf.

^ Gosh, what is that? Please don't push the Haussmannian style into some sort of commieblocks!
These squeezed windows, the roof section, that central upper balcony and the fake steep mansarde roofs are the worst parts.

Either they create tasteful New Classical with dignity and proper proportions, or they just go for something organic or else. But not this kind of fallacious kitsch, please.

^ That has nothing to do with the hausmannian style. It's the continuation of a more modern, 20th century architecture.

Might be. Whatever it is attempting to do though, it's failing.

Bob, we have snow almost every year in Paris (Last winter was quite an exception).

Wait, the Place de l'Opera project is approved? I thought it wasn't part of the set of squares that were gonna be remodelled.

And if yes, I'm tired of them putting trees everywhere and hiding the Haussmannian facades.

It has been approved by its arrondissement and it will be discussed next week in the city hall of Paris.

It has support from all politicians right, left and green party.

Woow, that's fantastic, I'm so glad they approved it. Opera for pedestrians, that's awesome. Next la concorde and bastille
And thanks to all for posting the great and diverse projects in Paris despite the very bad and hostile mood in this thread

I like it too. It has worked very well at Republique, despite the quality of the details and finishing there not being amazing.
