If you've been to Paris, you know more or less what Metro stations look like. Well this particular one, located very near the Louvre, on the Place Colette (a famous French female writer born in 1873) , is really different. It is called the Kiosque des noctambules (night birds kiosk) and its structure consists of two domes made of glass spheres, looking like jewels. It was made under the supervision of contemporary artist Jean-Michel Othoniel for the RATP (the French public transportation organization). If you come to Paris, don't miss it.
