Lovely details and lots of refinement. There's a kind of uniqueness in these works.
And very photographer skills!

Paris and its industrial heritage.

As El Greco wanted, I prepared those photos set to show you Paris and its industrial heritage.
Paris does not offer masterpieces of industrial architecture as London, Hamburg ... do.
In city centre, there is some workshops and warehouses mixing steel and stone. Outside Paris, many factories, gasometres,... were razed. Today the main surviving objects are preserved and refurbished being some new attractions : EDF factorie will host the new "cité du cinéma", les Magasins Généraux (warehouse on the Seine River, near to Bibliothèque François Mitterrand) the new Design and Fashion Museum, Halle Freyssinet a new tribunal, SUDAC is now a National School of Architecture...





IMO the most interesting pieces regarding industrial heritage are bridges.

I'll try to do further another set of pictures. I'm sorry but I haven't enought pictures of this king of architecture.

Great pictures !
@JP: have you already been to the Christofle factory in Saint-Denis? I have never seen it but it's supposed to be one of the most impressive Paris industrial heritage, like a huge brick town. Maybe you have some pictures of it?

My favorite pics are: 'Fouquets', 'Ministère de la Culture', and some of those night shots of the Louvre.

Paris should be the capital of Europe...

Best culture, best architecture, best nightlife and best skyline (by far).

You can see the EDF power plant when you take the RER C towards Ermont-Eaubonne. The environment around doesn't look inviting at all, it seems to be a real wasteland...I hope they will create a real neighborhood near the future Cité du Cinéma.
As for the architecture of the building itself, what I can see from the RER is not enough to form an opinion. I should make the effort to go to the place...I found a link with some pictures of the power plant, mainly from the inside: http://wallace.morkitu.org/thumbnail.php?album=32
It does look interesting. Unfortunately there are only 2 photos from the outside.

La Villette :
Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie by Adrien Fainsilber - 1980-86
Garden and its "Folies" by Tschumi (according to the philosophy of Derrida) - 1982/95. Those realisations are one of the first deconstructivist building.

Magnifique série. C'est le même immeuble celui de Guimard avec la façade primée et les photos suivantes ?

Merci
Ce sont les photos 11 à 17, le Castel Beranger.

Les autres façades sont signées Lavirotte, Perret...et d'autres qui ne me reviennent pas...
Et il faut souligner l'apport majeur de Bigot, céramiste, auteur des ornements (autant dire même des façades!). Toutes les céramiques présentes sur les photos sont à son actif! Y compris les motifs floraux de l'immeuble des frères Perret avenue Franklin (photo 4)

Non je ne crois pas. Ca reste une force assez courrante...
Les motifs sur les vitres sont quant à eux caractéristiques.
