Trip Report Modern Architecture in Paris - See Something Different

Jump to last reply

So we're back from our four months in Europe but I'm still blogging about our trip and I thought perhaps some of you would find my current post interesting.

At the end of March the New York Times had an article on modern architecture in Paris http://travel.nytimes.com/2013/03/31/travel/in-paris-mixing-the-contemporary-with-the-classics.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

The article featured a couple of interesting buildings including the Ministry of Culture which has some very interesting cladding and is close to the Louvre, just down from the Palais Royal. Anyway my BIL was visiting and as an architect was running all over the suburbs with a friend looking at interesting/sustainable public housing complexes. So inspired by the article and my BIL, we took a fun walk through a lot of the 1980s developments in Bercy, past the Cinemateque, over the river to the National Library. From here we walked along the waterfront to Nouvel's Institute du Monde Arabe. I was fascinated to see the relocated Ministry of Finance which was moved out of the Louvre as part of IM Pei's plan which of course included the now iconic glass pyramids.

If you're interested, we took with Paris Walks but you could easily do it on your own, you can see photos and more details here.

Of course there's lots more modern architecture to see in Paris, but this is an interesting and pretty stroll. We ended on the rood of the Arab Institute and the view over Notre dame made a fabulous contrast to the building we'd been looking at.

I seem to be in a modern jag as I've also been blogging about the Dubuffet Foundation and the Pompidou too. We were fascinated to see the Dubuffet Foundation as we had no idea there was a site dedicated to his art - even though we'd seen the collection at the Pompidou and the Arts Decoratif, Recommended in case any of you are fans of Dubuffet.
