Hopefully most European cities will preserve their own traditional architectural style over the coming years. Asia for the most part has already lost its traditional style. Kinda sad in a way.
so true!!!

Cities are ever-evolving and leave chronological prints through their architecture. Paris, for example, has left a very big print of its late 19th century architecture that destroyed a lot of earlier architecture and now dominates the city. Yet, it is the late 19th c. Hausmannian style that we either love or hate about Paris because it represents her so much and is unique to Paris (imitations exist along some avenues and boulevards of other French cities and even Buenos Aires but not to the extent of Paris and somehow different enough).

Also, this style of contemporary architecture is quite unique to Paris and to Europe if you stretch it enough. It is not something that you see in North American cities or that I have seen in Asia or Latin America. Those 3 other realms of the world tend to have their own style of contemporary architecture that rarely coincides with the European stuff that is popping up.

Finally, the majority of Paris does not look like this. Paris is still Paris.

I apologise for my earlier comments. It is refreshing to see a side of Paris that I didn't really know existed.

I must say I find this district absolutely boring, not by virtude of it being modern or not romantic, but rather utilitarian, cold, "unurban", etc.

I can see the "cold" as too often contemporary/modern is seen as cold but can you explain separately how these buildings may be

1. utilitarian and
2. unurban (if not urban, what are they?...subburban, rural )

and can you explain how Paris' Hausmannization of it's urban landscape in the latter half of the 19th c. was not utilitarian, assuming you prefer the more prominent Haussmann look of Paris.
