Turning the 70's into the "10's"
I took this photo on the Front de Seine (Seine left embankment), in the 15th arrondissement, in the west of Paris. These red shapes belong to a skyscraper and are typical of what architects did in the 70s (the Front de Seine was built between 1967 and 1979). This area is now totally passé and there is a renewal project underway (delivery date 2009/10) with , as usual, a lot of controversy. If you speak French - and are interested in this story - do watch this video and/or pay a visit to this site. You can even take part in a forum about Paris architecture.
