I'm a little behind on going through my architecture/land use/design sources for items of possible interest for myself or a2k - this one is from the Architectural Record on Dec. 3, 2007.

I'll put in a little poll, but will look for more information in the meantime. LINK

Berger and Anziutti's scheme for an undulating, canopy-shaped building replaces above-ground elements of Forum des Halles, a 15-acre shopping complex that extends five levels below ground. A 10-acre rectangular garden of Les Halles and the surrounding streets will be redesigned by David Mangin.

Walter started a thread about the Les Halles facelift a few months ago.

It will be interesting to see how the design will turn out in practice. I hope it doesn't obscure or distract from the Église de St. Eustache, which is one of my favorite churches in the city.

Ah, sorry, Walter and Shapeless, I missed that. I may add a few more photos here anyway, or maybe over there. (I'm still interested in the poll above.)



Just checked Walter's thread. Lot of helpful info there.

Aaagh, I started googling for images of the 19th century Les Halles (iron and glass, or am I confused, were there glass pavilions?) - there are probably paintings or watercolors or photos, but no luck yet.

I'm fond of old gallerie, not that I've been to so many.. but I could be interested in that as a design. Not that I'd vote for that over this one, just interested.

Wow. I do like that... or some elements of that, a lot.
