Sleeping Beauty... "Paris and its architecture"...

Paris known as a sleeping beauty, does never assume its contemporaryness. Even if it offers masterpieces of architecture and major reflexions, there is still a gap between what we do and what we show. Paris is one of those rare places where Le Corbusier can meet Franck Gehry, Guimard; Jean Nouvel, Rogers; Pei.
Let me propose some exemples which make me love Paris as an exciting place for architecture and I hope showing my photographical work you'll share my passion.

Villa Savoye - Le Corbusier - 1928


Centre Georges Pompidou - Rogers & Piano - 1977


Fouquets - Edouard François - 2006


Musée des Arts Premiers - Jean Nouvel - 2006


Bibliothèque François Mitterrand - Dominique Perrault - 1996


Passerelle Simone de Beauvoir - Feichtinger - 2006


Tour EDF - Pei - 2001


Ministère de la Culture - Francis Soler - 2004


Drugstore Publicis - Michele Saee - 2004


Palais de la Porte Dorée - Albert Laprade - 1931


Totem - Andrault et Parat - 1979


Cinémathèque - Frank Gehry - 1993


Grand Louvre - Pei - 1989-2000


Kiosque des noctambules - Jean-Michel Othoniel - 2000


BBDO - Jean Nouvel - 1992


Fontaines et Colonnes du Palais Royal - Buren - 1986

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

En ce qui me concerne j'aimerai bien voir plus de photos (plans larges, détails extérieurs) de la Villa Savoye, du nouveau Fouquet's, et du quai Branly

Superbe série sinon, mais on y est habitués avec toi

@El Greco
I'm preparing a mix of my pictures of industrial Paris.

@Juanico
Je t'ai mis quelques photos du musée du quai Branly et te renvoie au thread que j'avais crée il y a un moment. Etant interdit de photographier l'intérieur, je n'ai malheureusement rien à te proposer.
Pour le fouquets je n'ai pas beaucoup de photos.
Et la Villa Savoye, je te renvoie au thread que j'avais crée sur le forum français
