While walking through Les Halles a year ago I had thoughts of blowing this place away. So replacing it with The Canopee seems like a reasonable alternative.

^^ :lol:

A lot of people here felt exactly the same way, my friend...

Problem is...it's probably not going to get any better in the future with this "masterpiece"...:lol:....

The 'Halles' turned into a giant Meccano

A year & a half after the start of work, the 'Canopée' which will cover the future Forum des Halles is commencing to rise from the ground.

The roof's metallic structure is being gradually installed. There are currently 300 workers, but by next autumn, 1000 workers should move into the site.
