https://parisrenovation.wordpress.com/ http://www.paris-renovation.com/ It was a time of industrial upheaval and cultural progress. Paris became the new destination for immigrants and nationals alike. Ancient districts began to feel the weight of overcrowding and with it the spread of disease. Paris, which hadn't changed since the Middle Ages, was in desperate need of a complete renovation. The the tiny winding streets of Medieval Paris were interfering with the city’s ability to transform and grow into a modern commercial and urban center. Napoleon III and Baron Georges-Eugene Haussmann set out to integrate a blueprint of order and structure on top of a cramped urban design to put an end to it's outdated, chaotic archaic framework. New roads, avenues, and boulevards as well as parks, monuments, and churches were built on such a scale that it that it changed the architectural facade of the city we know today.

The proposed solution for the State Historical Building Renovation will maximize the reuse of the existing infrastructure, while right-sizing the building to a square footage that is more manageable for the department within its given operating budget. The west portion of the building will be renovated to accommodate exhibit galleries, classrooms, collection storage and office functions, while the east portion of the building will be removed to create a new outdoor public space and allow for sightlines with spectacular views of the state Capitol. Programmatic functions currently on the east side will be moved to the west side, creating a better defined visitor experience and more efficient staff operations. The existing building is underutilized and therefore oversized at 234,000 square feet; the new plan at 155,000 square feet will be more functional, flexible and adaptable for the future. For the first time in 157 years, the DCA is undertaking a full assessment of the State Historical Society of Iowa’s collection. When every single historical artifact, photograph, page of manuscript, birth certificate, rare book or archive in the state’s collection is recognized, it totals more than 209 million pieces of Iowa history. The first priority of this collection initiative is to increase access to the collection for Iowans, and technology is critical in this endeavor. The State Historical Museum and Research Centers must evolve to utilize current day collection management standards to become a place where history is preserved and technology is embraced to reach a broader audience. The State Historical Building has been facing a number of structural and maintenance issues for many years. Among these are: a failing building envelope with no vapor barrier, exposed pipes above exhibits and collection storage, unsealed concrete ceilings, water leaks, a faulty internal drainage system, failing exterior granite and an outdated heating and cooling system that needs to be replaced in its entirety. Through a renovation, all of these issues will be addressed while reutilizing the existing infrastructure to ensure the most cost-effective renovation solution.

Situated on the northern edge of central Paris, the new Tribunal de Paris will regroup various facilities currently dispersed around the capital, becoming the largest law courts complex in Europe. The building takes the form of a slim, transparent, 160m tower of stacked volumes of decreasing size, carefully laid out for efficiency and ease of use. The project for the new law court building, a public–private partnership, was launched to alleviate the increasingly cramped accommodation of several different services around central Paris, including the regional court, the police court, the public prosecution courts and the district courts attached to each of the city’s sectors (arrondissements). Situated in the urban development zone of Clichy–Batignolles on the northern edge of Paris, the site is at a key intersection between the different administrative areas of Parisand its suburbs. It is also well connected by public transport, including the northern stretch of the highly successful new tramway. The scale of the building is reduced by breaking it down into four superimposed volumes of decreasing size, the first of which, long and low, fits in readily with the proportions of Haussmann’s Paris. The three subsequent levels each contain some ten storeys. This tiered system gives rise to large roof terraces – around a hectare in total – which will be landscaped and planted with some 500 trees, again softening the feel of the building and creating comfortable spaces for reflection or discussion. h/t Archdaily -------------------------------------------------- ►WELCOME TO HOME&IDEAS CHANNEL •Subscribe to HOME&IDEAS YouTube Channel : https://goo.gl/kmXXvu -------------------------------------------------- ►CONNECT WITH HOME & IDEAS ! •Google+ : https://goo.gl/5oYKeb •Twitter : https://goo.gl/xahrkn •Facebook : https://goo.gl/WS7XTq •Instagram : https://goo.gl/g9MQi6 •Pinterest : https://goo.gl/fTko4U

Paris, France is the grand megacity of Europe at the forefront of human progress. Video by Bryce Plank Hyper-lapse footage courtesy of: Tyler Fairbank https://www.youtube.com/c/TylerFairbank www.TylerFairbank.com0 Pavel Tenyakov https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHzDhebSXvisNFCLhjuGVgw TDC on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/thedailyconversation http://www.twitter.com/thedailyconvo Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ Script: One MegaCity always seems to be at the forefront of progressive movements. Whether it’s innovation in its cuisine, couture, infrastructure, or governance, this refuge for the rebel, artist, philosopher, and scientist, has always held a place in the hearts of romantics and vanguards alike. Because here, in The City of Light, engineers and artists often share a line of sight. This is Paris, the Grand MegaCity. Twenty-three hundred years ago, a group of Celtic Gauls called the Parisii settled on the Île de la Cité, a small island in the middle of the Seine. After falling into the hands of the Roman Empire, the town grew, until the Empire collapsed a short time later. Clovis, the first king to unite all the Frankish tribes is the origin of the name Louis, taken by 18 subsequent French monarchs. For the next thousand years, or the period known as the Middle Ages, Paris saw rulers, religions, wars, and plagues come and go as it became the largest city in Europe. Home to one of the first Universities and the birthplace of Gothic architecture, Paris was ground zero for the enlightenment. Philosophies embracing individual liberty, religious tolerance, and the scientific method, were perfectly captured by the phrase Sapere aude, “dare to know.” In the end, the monarchy and the Church were simply overmatched by the sheer power of a set of ideas whose time had come--ideas that were spread far and wide by books and pamphlets. The stage was set for Revolution. On the afternoon of July 14, 1789, the Bastille, a medieval fortress and prison symbolizing royal authority in the center of Paris, was overtaken by force. It was the opening move in a ten year struggle that featured the overthrow of the monarchy, the establishment of the French Republic, and violent political turmoil. The dictatorship of Napoleon followed, delivering many principles of the revolution to much of Western Europe. By the middle of the 1800’s, Paris had well over a million people, but was made up of tight streets and overpopulated, filthy alleyways. Life for many was a miserable, day-to-day struggle in disease-ridden slums. So Napoleon’s nephew, who had become emperor himself, set out to make the city healthier, less congested, and grander. He turned to a clever man described as big, strong, energetic, and full of audacity and skill: the visionary urban planner Baron Haussmann. He imagined the modern city as a living organism with the boulevards its arteries. Over the next 17 years, the duo oversaw the most epic public works spree since Ancient Rome. Tens of thousands of workers were hired to carry out their plans, which included a new aqueduct and massive reservoir to bring clean water from the Vanne River, and hundreds of kilometers of pipes to distribute it throughout the city; completely rebuilding the sewer system and installing hundreds of kilometers of pipes inside of it to distribute gas for thousands of new streetlights; two brand new rail stations connecting Paris to the rest of France; and more than twenty parks to ensure that none was more than a ten minute’s walk away. Four of these ‘lawns of Paris’ were major parks, inspired by Hyde Park in London which Napoleon remembered fondly from his time in exile. But the innovation that most transformed the city was Haussmann's dedication to wide boulevards, twelve of which converge on the roundabout circling the Arc De Triomphe. Throughout the thirty year undertaking, hundreds of thousands of people were displaced in phases as the entire city became a construction zone. This sacrifice - which wasn’t always appreciated by the residents of Paris - was well worth the end result. The discipline to keep the buildings lining these avenues the same height, all faced with similar colored stone, created a striking visual effect. Over the next 100 years, Paris was thankfully spared the widespread destruction suffered by many other capitals in the wars and conflicts that unfolded across Europe. When the unthinkable happened in 1940, and flags were raised throughout Paris during the German occupation, the city was declared too beautiful to destroy. Famous photos show him posing like a tourist at the base of the Eiffel tower, which was the tallest building in the world at the time of its construction in 1889. Originally planned to be dismantled after 20 years, converting it into a radio tower saved it and today it is the most visited landmark on the planet.

Paris is the capital and most populous city of France. Situated on the Seine River, in the north of the country, it is at the heart of the Île-de-France region. The city's municipality (the 20 arrondissements) had a population of 2,243,833 in 2010, while its urban agglomeration, the second most populous in the European Union after that of London, has more than eleven million inhabitants. An important settlement for more than two millennia, by the late 12th century Paris had become a walled cathedral city that was one of Europe's foremost centres of learning and the arts and the largest city in the Western world until the turn of the 18th century. Paris was the focal point for many important political events throughout its history, including the French Revolution. Today it is one of the world's leading business and cultural centres, and its influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, science, fashion and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world's major cities. The city has one of the largest GDPs in the world, €607 billion (US$845 billion) in 2011, and as a result of its high concentration of national and international political, cultural and scientific institutions is one of the world's leading tourist destinations. In 2013-2014, it received an estimated 15.57 million international overnight visitors, making it third most popular destination for international travelers, after London and Bangkok. The Paris Region hosts the world headquarters of 30 of the Fortune Global 500 companies in several business districts, notably La Défense, the largest dedicated business district in Europe. Centuries of cultural and political development have brought Paris a variety of museums, theatres, monuments and architectural styles. Many of its masterpieces such as the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe are iconic buildings, especially its internationally recognized symbol, the Eiffel Tower. Long regarded as an international centre for the arts, works by history's most famous painters can be found in the Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay and its many other museums and galleries. Paris is a global hub of fashion and has been referred to as the "international capital of style", noted for its haute couture tailoring, its high-end boutiques, and the twice-yearly Paris Fashion Week. It is world renowned for its haute cuisine, attracting many of the world's leading chefs. Many of France's most prestigious universities and Grandes Écoles are in Paris or its suburbs, and France's major newspapers Le Monde, Le Figaro, Libération are based in the city, and Le Parisien in Saint-Ouen near Paris. Paris is home to the association football club Paris Saint-Germain FC and the rugby union club Stade Français. The 80,000-seat Stade de France, built for the 1998 FIFA World Cup, is located in Saint-Denis. Paris hosts the annual French Open Grand Slam tennis tournament on the red clay of Roland Garros. Paris played host to the 1900 and 1924 Summer Olympics, the 1938 and 1998 FIFA World Cup, and the 2007 Rugby World Cup. The city is a major rail, highway, and air-transport hub, served by the two international airports Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly. Opened in 1900, the city's subway system, the Paris Métro, serves 5.23 million passengers daily. Paris is the hub of the national road network, and is surrounded by three orbital roads: the Boulevard Périphérique, the A86 motorway, and the Francilienne motorway in the outer suburbs. The architecture in Paris has been constrained by laws related to the height and shape of buildings at least since the 17th century, to the point that alignement and (often uniformity of height) of buildings is a characteristic and recognizable trait of Paris streets in spite of the evolution of architectural styles. However, a large part of contemporary Paris has been affected by the vast mid-19th century urban remodelling. For centuries, the center of the city had been a labyrinth of narrow streets and half-timber houses, but, beginning in 1853, under the direction of Napolean III and his préfet de Seine Georges-Eugène Haussmann, entire quarters were levelled to make way for wide avenues lined with neo-classical stone buildings of bourgeoisie standing. The building code has been slightly relaxed since the 1850s, but the Second Empire plans are in many cases more or less followed. An "alignement" law is still in place, which regulates a building's height according to the width of the streets it borders, and under the regulation, it is almost impossible to get an approval to build a taller building. However, specific authorizations allowed for the construction of many high-rise buildings in the 1960s and early 1970s, most of them limited to a height of 100 m, in peripheral arrondissements. Churches are the oldest intact buildings in the city, and show high Gothic architecture at its best Notre Dame cathedral and the Sainte-Chapelle are two of the most striking buildings in the city.

"Monet to Matisse: Masterworks of French Impressionism from the Dixon Gallery and Gardens" boasts significant works of art by the most dynamic artists to work in late 19th- and early 20th-century France, including Claude Monet, Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Gauguin, and Henri Matisse. From plein air landscapes to scenes of modern life in Paris, the 30 paintings in the exhibition illustrate the radical innovations launched by artists we know today as Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. Beginning in 1853, the city of Paris underwent a dramatic modernization as Georges Haussmann’s urban plan transformed the French capital from a chaotic web of medieval streets to a more orderly system of wide, tree-lined boulevards, bustling with energy in its many cafes and parks. As keen observers of the changes taking place around them, a group of artists began to move away from more traditional forms of art rooted in history and religion, dedicating themselves instead to “the painting of modern life” and to creating their work en plein air, or directly on location, to give a quick impression of a particular moment in nature. Ultimately, this group would become known as the Impressionists. They organized eight independent exhibitions between 1874 and 1886, where they continued to promote the practice of painting directly from nature and recording modern life as a means of conveying truth in art. In doing so, they changed the course of art history, revolutionizing the way art was viewed in Paris, and eventually around the world. In the years that followed the landmark Impressionist exhibitions, a wave of younger painters pushed the basic tenets of the movement into uncharted reaches of formal innovation. Daring figures such as Pierre Bonnard, Paul Gauguin, Georges Seurat, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and eventually Henri Matisse found in Impressionism’s independence a license for their own experimentation. These avant-garde painters would come to be known as Post-Impressionists, as they embraced new subjects, invented new pictorial structures, and applied color theory in utterly unexpected ways. These remarkable painters in turn set the course of Western art in new directions and laid the groundwork for generations of artists to come, including those who are working today. This exhibition is organized by the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, Memphis, and curated by Julie Pierotti. The presentation of this exhibition at Telfair Museums is curated by Courtney McNeil, Chief Curator and Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs.

The Val-de-Grâce church is one of the lesser-known sights of Paris, but one well worth tracking down. The massive church dome is a landmark on the Paris skyline, and its history is fascinating. The whole complex was built as a thank-you gift. Anne of Austria, wife of Louis XIII, commissioned it after the birth of her son in 1638 (he became Louis XIV, the Sun King). The birth seemed like a gift from God, after 23 barren years. On the 1st of April, 1643, the seven year old future king of France, along with his mother, laid the first stone of the church. The Church was modeled after the most beautiful churches in Rome and the architects involved in its construction were the most famous of the time. The first architect, Francois Mansart, the grand master of classical French architecture, was responsible for the initial design and the first stages of the building project. Mansart was succeeded by Jacques le Mercier, the architect responsible for the Chapel of the Sorbonne, and by another eminent classical architect, Gabriel Le Duc. The building was completed in 1667 and adhered closely to the plans laid out by Mansart some 25 years earlier. The Cupola of the Church is the work of Pierre Mignard,while the statuary and the columns were realized by Philippe Buyster. The entire Church is one of the jewels of Paris art and architecture.

Secrets In Plain Sight is an awe inspiring exploration of great art, architecture, and urban design which skillfully unveils an unlikely intersection of geometry, politics, numerical philosophy, religious mysticism, new physics, music, astronomy, and world history. Exploring key monuments and their positions in Egypt, Stonehenge, Jerusalem, Rome, Paris, London, Edinburgh, Washington DC, New York, and San Francisco brings to light a secret obsession shared by pharaohs, philosophers and kings; templars and freemasons; great artists and architects; popes and presidents, spanning the whole of recorded history up to the present time. As the series of videos reveals how profound ancient knowledge inherited from Egypt has been encoded in units of measurement, in famous works of art, in the design of major buildings, in the layout of city streets and public spaces, and in the precise placement of obelisks and other important monuments upon the Earth, the viewer is led to perceive an elegant harmonic system linking the human body with the architectural, urban, planetary, solar, and galactic scales.

MVRDV presents vision for Grand Paris 2030 This animation presents MVRDVs vision for Greater Paris 2030. The project Paris Plus petit by MVRDV in collaboration with ACS and AAF is one of ten proposals by international architecture and urbanism teams to envision the future of the French capital and its vast agglomeration. The urban challenge has been commissioned by Nicolas Sarkozy, President of France. Paris Plus stands for more: more ambition, more optimism, more density, more efficiency, more ecology and more compactness. Greater Paris needs a strong combination of responsibility and ambition to continue its development, to ensure its consistency and to develop a cohesion that can build a base for a collective enterprise to solve its problems, to enlarge its presence and attractiveness, to create an even more remarkable, exemplary city. MVRDV with ACS and AAFs response for President Sarkozys 2009 urban planning consultation for the great challenge of the Greater Paris area is represented in four parts: the Synthesis, the City Calculator©, the Data and the Observation. The Synthesis defines the spatial agenda for the city, based on ambitious and responsible strategies for the French capital. It is the core of the response and proposes a series of 17 large scale interventions that are based on an analysis of the citys fabric, its future programmatic needs and spatial possibilities. The proposals are interventions based on available space and feasible. Among them the ambition to make Paris highly accessible: the creation of a grand central station at the location of Les Halles, underground densification of the Boulevard Périphérique by adding a metro line and two underground motorways ring-roads, the creation of new Grand Axes and a subterranean infrastructure band along the Seine. The space liberated by the buried infrastructure is used for a housing program that allows for urban living in pleasant and green environments. Further parts of the vision are investments into transport, nature, education, culture, social cohesion and vast amounts of renewable energy. The sum of all projects can avoid future sprawl and radically transform Paris into one of the densest, most compact and therefore sustainable high quality cities in the world: Paris Plus petit. The City Calculator© is a proposed demo version of a potential software and possible webtool, which quantifies the behaviour and performance of a city and makes it comparable to others. It connects qualitative to quantitative parameters. It can be used as a public and planning tool to support sustainable planning. The City Calculator© will be conceived in collaboration, by The Why Factory at Delft University of Technology. The Data gives the overview of the detailed research on the functioning and performance of Greater Paris, which has been the background for the spatial proposals. The Observations are a series of articles on the backgrounds, the history, the potentials and the problems of the French metropolis. President Nicolas Sarkozy commissioned in June 2008 ten teams of architects and urban planners to imagine an exemplary "Grand Paris" a sustainable and boldly designed capital. The project was hailed being the most ambitious since Haussmann changed Paris in the 19th century. The challenge for the 10 teams was envisioning the European metropolis in 2030 being a "post-Kyoto" green urban centre which allows for growth beyond the current two million Parisians and provides them with attractive urban environments. The ten plans are presented in an exhibition at Cité de lArchitecture open to the public from the 29th of April 2009 until the 22nd of November 2009. www.citechaillot.fr The animation is made by Wieland Gouwens, Rotterdam www.wieland-gouwens.nl Visit www.mvrdv.nl for more information You can also follow MVRDV on Twitter

Hello and welcome to another New York Habitat video tour ( http://www.nyhabitat.com ). Today, we will be giving you a tour of Les Grands Boulevards, a fantastic neighborhood of Paris with both amazing day and night life. Les Grands Boulevards (the big boulevards) start at Place de la République and end at the prestigious Grands Magasins. From Charles V, in the 14th century, to Napoleon III's modification of Paris, the Boulevards, famous for their theaters, offer 600 years of Paris' History. From 1853 to 1870, le Baron Haussmann was obsessed with the culture of straight lines and transformed the old Paris of Charles V into the one you can still see today, the Paris of Napoleon III. The magnificent Opera of Charles Garnier (1875) is a good starting point to explore the Boulevard lifestyle of the 19th century. This piece of architecture, easily spotted by its large dome, is a place to go enjoy a ballet or some lyrical singing. Book a seat to admire the ceiling, painted by Marc Chagall in 1964, during your visit. Walk down the Boulevard des Capucines and you will reach the Madeleine Church. The neo-classical building, which is one of Paris' most famous churches, took nearly a century to construct. Le Musée Grévin is a living theatre of wax celebrities, which includes the first man on the moon and Brad Pitt. At the end stop for a drink at the museum's brand new. If you like you can have your Perrier served by the King himself, Elvis! The Porte Saint-Denis and the Porte Saint-Martin are two grandiose archways, at the end of the Grand Boulevards, used to mark the entrance of Louis XIV's Paris. The Sun King always knew how to deal with his armies and the two triumph arcs are here to remember it forever. The Porte Saint-Denis and the Porte Saint-Martin illustrate the victories of the French army. After the Porte Saint-Denis, the street turns into a "faubourg" or a neighborhood, the Faubourg Saint-Denis. This colorful street is full of fruit and vegetable vendors, wine shops and cool cafés, such as Chez Jeanette (47 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis). It is a great place to buy some food and cook it in your New York Habitat vacation rental ( http://www.nyhabitat.com/paris-apartment/vacation ). Stop for an apéritif at one of the numerous cafés of the Faubourg Saint-Denis and take in the relaxing atmosphere of the 10th arrondissement. The Galeries Lafayette (40 Boulevard Haussmann) and Printemps, just next door, are the fashion malls of Paris. You will not only appreciate the huge selection of the hottest brand names in fashion, but you will be amazed by the building housing the Galeries Lafayette itself. With tons of brasseries, cafés and restaurants, the Grands Boulevards provide an endless supply of culinary pleasures. However, French cuisine is not the only reward after a day of exploring. It is also a nice place for terraces and night clubs. Food fans should also check out the Chocolate Museum on Boulevard de Bonne Nouvelle. Here are a few of David Hill's favorites: Chez Jeanette (47 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis), Racines (8 Passage des Panoramas), Le Grand Café (4 Boulevard des Capucines), Chartier (7 Rue du Faubourg Montmartre), and le Musée du chocolat (28 Boulevard de Bonne Nouvelle).

Rick Steves' Europe Travel Guide | In Paris, amidst all of its grandeur, the little joys of life are still embraced. In this first of two episodes on Paris, we'll cruise the Seine River, visit Napoleon's tomb, and take in the Louvre. Then we'll feel the pulse of Paris — shopping in village-like neighborhoods, attending church in a grand pipe organ loft, and celebrating the mother of all revolutions with a big, patriotic Bastille Day bang. © 2012 Rick Steves' Europe

Seine River Cruise 2017 4K, Paris Travel Vlog 4K, Paris River Cruise, Normandy on the Seine Travel Vlog 4K https://goo.gl/HzFhA4 The Seine River flows through the center of Paris and is the main artery of the City of Light. You can cruise down one of Europe's most enchanting river through storybook landscapes of vineyards, historic abbeys, Norman castles, tranquil orchards and medieval towns. On a Seine River Cruise you'll have the chance to explore the beauty of Versailles, see picturesque Honfleur and discover the Alabaster coast. You can visit the home of Claude Monet in Giverny, with its wonderful gardens, stroll the streets of Rouen, the city of Joan of Arc, with it's half timbered houses and immerse yourself in the grandeur of Paris. About the Seine River ===================== The name of the Seine derives from the Latin sequana or “snake.” Glancing at the map of this river, you will immediately appreciate how it got its name—it meanders, snakelike, through the countryside, from the French interior to the Normandy coast. The length of the river between Paris and the sea is nearly 240 miles, but the distance as the crow flies is only 110 miles. Winding through the countryside, a Seine River cruise can take visitors to some of the most beautiful and storied locations in northern France. Along the river lie such locations as Monet’s Giverny and historic Rouen for river cruise travelers to explore. The Seine River is the longest and most-used inland river in France, carrying the bulk of commercial traffic because the country’s other rivers are too shallow or have strong and unpredictable currents. The river is navigable for about 350 of its 482 total miles, and its gentle “fall” (it tops out at just 1,545 feet above sea level) made it relatively easy to canalize. Only six weirs and locks had to be built on the river between Paris and the English Channel to make a Seine cruise possible. The source of the Seine is in France’s Burgundy region; it flows from a spring in an idyllic wooded valley which even in Roman times had a special magnetism. Roman-Gallic offerings of sacrifice and a wonderful bronze statue of the goddess Sequana in a duck-shaped boat have been found during excavations in the area near the river and can be seen at the archaeological museum in Dijon. In the 19th century the city of Paris bought the land around the source of the Seine River and in 1865 erected a statue of the reclining Sequana in a grotto above the spring. The Seine River runs right through Paris; historically it was quite shallow in the city, but reservoirs and locks help to maintain a constant water level. Periodically the level of the Seine rises to threatening levels, most recently in the winter of 1999-2000. In 2003 there was a flood alert and about 100,000 works of art were taken from basement storage and moved out of Paris as a precaution against rising river waters. A Seine cruise through Paris on special sightseeing river cruise boats, whether by day or evening, is a must for visitors. The boats pass under many beautiful bridges along the river, each one unique, offering stunning views of iconic Parisian landmarks such as Notre Dame Cathedral and the Eiffel Tower. The Seine River in Paris became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991. A Seine cruise is described on the UNESCO list as follows: “From the Louvre to the Eiffel Tower, from the Place de la Concorde to the Grand and Petit Palais, the evolution of Paris and its history can be seen from the River Seine. The Cathedral of Notre-Dame and the Sainte Chapelle are architectural masterpieces while Haussmann’s wide squares and boulevards influenced late 19th- and 20th-century town planning the world over.”

Amanda Levete will discuss AL_A’s latest projects, with a particular focus on two recently completed museums: the Victoria & Albert Museum Exhibition Road Quarter in London and the Museum of Art, Architecture & Technology – MAAT – in Lisbon. She will look at how these cultural projects were conceived as urban projects and the importance of public space in our museums as well as the exceptional craftsmanship and intense collaborations that made both a reality. The lecture will explore the thinking that underpins AL_A’s work across scales, from the Ceramic Table to Central Embassy in Bangkok. She will address the need to advance the debate and why both narrative and emotion in architecture remain as vital as ever. Amanda Levete CBE is a RIBA Stirling Prize winning architect and founder and principal of AL_A, an international award-winning design and architecture studio. Since its formation in 2009, AL_A has refined an intuitive and strategic approach to design. Collaborating with ambitious and visionary clients, we develop designs that are conceptualised as urban projects not just buildings and projects that express the identity of an institution, a city or a nation. Recently completed projects include the Victoria & Albert Museum Exhibition Road Quarter (2017) in London, the V&A’s largest building project in over 100 years; MAAT (2016), a Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology in Lisbon, commissioned by EDP, one of the world’s foremost energy companies; Central Embassy (2017), a 1.5 million sq ft luxury shopping mall and hotel in Bangkok on the former grounds of the British Embassy; a 13-hectare media campus masterplan and a 37,700m2 headquarters building for Sky (2016) in London; and MPavilion 2015 in Melbourne. Ongoing commissions around the world include the transformation of the flagship Galleries Lafayette department store on Boulevard Haussmann in Paris; a new centre for the cancer care charity Maggie’s in Southampton; two new buildings for Wadham College at the University of Oxford; The Courtyard, a series of community mixed-use developments on 39 sites across Moscow; and the Monte St Angelo subway station in Naples. For over a decade, Levete was a trustee of both leading social innovation centre the Young Foundation and the influential arts organisation Artangel. She is a regular radio and TV broadcaster, writes for a number of publications including the New Statesman and Prospect and lectures throughout the world. She is a Visiting Professor and MArch tutor at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. In 2017 Levete was recognised in the Queen’s Birthday honours list and made a CBE for services to architecture. Levete trained at the Architectural Association and worked for Richard Rogers before joining Future Systems as a partner in 1989, where she realised ground-breaking buildings including the Media Centre at Lord’s Cricket Ground and Selfridges department store in Birmingham.

Places to see in ( Paris - France ) Printemps Printemps is a French department store chain. The Printemps stores focus on beauty, lifestyle, fashion, accessories, and men's wear. Printemps was founded in 1865 by Jules Jaluzot and Jean-Alfred Duclos. The original store was designed by noted architects Jules and Paul Sédille and opened at the corner of Le Havre and Boulevard Haussmann in Paris, France, on 3 November 1865. The building was greatly expanded in 1874, and elevators (then a great novelty) from the 1867 Universal Exposition were installed. Rebuilt after a fire in 1881, the store became the first to use electric lighting, in 1888. (Customers could observe the workings of the power plant behind a glass wall.) It was also one of the first department stores with direct subway access, the Metro being connected in 1904. The flagship Printemps store is located on Boulevard Haussmann in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, along with other well-known department stores like Galeries Lafayette. There are other Printemps stores in Paris and throughout France. The company has opened branches outside France in locations including Andorra, the Ginza shopping district in Tokyo, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and Shanghai. However, the franchises in Seoul, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, which opened in the 1980s, and the one in Taipei, which opened in 1993, are closed, as is the only North American branch in Denver, Colorado, which had opened in 1987. A franchise that was supposed to open in 1998 in Ratu Plaza, Jakarta, was under construction and was being finished when the Asian economic crisis and the May 1998 riots hit, and the franchise never opened. On 15 January 2014, Printemps opened "its first new store in 32 years in the Carrousel du Louvre shopping mall in Paris." The figures of the Four Seasons on the façade were sculpted by French sculptor Henri Chapu. Jaluzot was replaced as owner in 1900 by Gustave Laguionie, after the business came close to collapse. In the early 20th century, the building was then extended along the Boulevard Haussmann by architect René Binet in an art nouveau style. The building burned down, and its interior was rebuilt in the 1920s. A remarkable feature of the Haussmann store is an elaborate cupola above the main restaurant in the store, installed during the 1923 reconstruction. In 1939, to avoid the risk that it would be destroyed in bombing attacks, the cupola was dismantled and stored at Clichy. It was restored in 1973 by the grandson of its original designer, using plans that had been kept in the archives of the family business. In 1975, the façade and cupola of the building were registered as historical monuments. Their slogan, invented in 1996, is "Au Printemps, nous avons des vêtements!", which is sung as a catchy jingle in advertisements.

На русском: https://youtu.be/t0QybE8NFVA The history of urbanism is suffused with the aspiration to improve the living conditions for the masses and create a safer, more sophisticated urban environment. This had spawned many massive housing projects throughout the world: from Baron Haussmann renovation of Paris in the 19th century, to redevelopment of Bombay’s residential area in the first half of the 20th century, to building khrushchevkas in the USSR, to the renovation of residential areas on Istanbul, to the recent Seestadt Aspern project in Vienna. In each case, the sheer scale of the project caused a continuing ripple effect throughout the city and the whole country. Starting its own massive renovation, Moscow needs to consider a variety of possible consequences. What other objectives beside the improvement of the living conditions should large urban development projects establish? What parameters need to be monitored? How can a large urban project propel the development of the urban environment and minimise the risks?

Places to see in ( Le Havre - France ) Appartement Temoin Although the architecture of Auguste Perret is internationally recognized today, the history and layout of the apartments proposed in the draft reconstruction of Havre were long ignored. Opened in March 2006 , as part of the inscription by UNESCO 's Downtown rebuilding of Le Havre on the List of World Heritage of Humanity, the witness Apartment Perret is a museum of the City of Havre dedicated in architecture interior, as well as furnishings and daily life since the release until the mid 1950s . The immediate post-war period is a search for "ideal housing" for the many victims of the bombed cities; during the International Exhibition of Town Planning and Housing (July 1947) are presented very diversified projects like the Radiant City of Marseille ( Le Corbusier ) or the buildings of Sotteville - lès - Rouen by Marcel Lods . As for the buildings without individual assignments imagined by Auguste Perret 's Atelier , located in the town hall square in Le Havre , they are already an example to follow in many architectural journals. Drawn and published in 1946, this project obeys several constraints in order to grant: an economical solution ( concrete material , prefabrication , standardization ) a sustainable construction method ("classic" ( banal ) architecture , robust frame) "modern" comfort (sunshine, interior equipment). Beyond the arrangement in "open islands", the study of the interiors, also makes it possible to understand that this architecture is not reduced to its classicism but widens to a search for optimal solutions, defined by the result of the experiments the past. On the other hand, the ideal of "sustainability" is made even more obvious by observing the flexibility of the interiors as the uses are considered as provisional elements of the architecture: " The interior of the apartment? Naked. No fixed decor. Just proportions. It is up to the inhabitant to decorate his dwelling; and I imagine that this scenery will vary. To contemplate without respite the same forms is to hear the same poet daily. There is something to make it odious. The modern architect will be better able to respect the personality of the inhabitant ". Expressing this way in 1925, it is easy to understand that the exterior aesthetics wants to evoke the general "character" of an urban dwelling (the Haussmann island), without, however, determining its internal use irreversibly. The interior design of the Perret apartments was revolutionary.

On 14 June, J.B. Foster ranch foreman William Brazel found a ‘large area of bright wreckage made up of rubber strips, tinfoil, a rather tough paper and sticks’. Thinking little of it, he didn’t collect the debris until 4 July and only informed the local Sheriff on 7 July after hearing reports of ‘flying discs’. Sheriff Wilcox immediately contacted Major Jesse Marcel at the Roswell Army Air Field. An officer from the base soon visited the site from where the debris had been recovered and retrieved some other small pieces. Marcel took the fragments back to Roswell Army Air Field from where it was soon sent to Fort Worth Army Air Field. In the meantime, the RAAF issued the press release detailing the recovery of the ‘flying disc’. The local newspaper, the Roswell Daily Record, featured the story on their front page in what is believed to be the first use of the term ‘flying saucer’. On the same day an FBI telex from Fort Worth stated that the object resembled ‘a high altitude weather balloon with a radar reflector’. This led to less sensationalist newspaper reports the next day. Interest in the Roswell discovery subsided until UFO researchers in the late 1970s began interviewing people who claimed to have connections with the 1947 events. Numerous books followed, to which the Air Force responded by releasing two reports beginning with The Roswell Report: Fact vs. Fiction in the New Mexico Desert in 1994. These concluded that the debris was from Project Mogul, a top secret project by the US Army Air Force, which was designed to detect Soviet atomic bomb tests.

2/25/16 The concomitant publication in 2015 of three books about Le Corbusier, all of them critical of his ideological failings, triggered heated polemics focusing on his engagement with the leading political forces of the first half of the twentieth century. Yet the view held by these authors, for whom Le Corbusier was a man viscerally committed to far-right groups, does not stand up to a more comprehensive analysis of his political passions. Le Corbusier was also engaged in a cyclical flirtation with the Left and other forces. Perhaps the time has come to consider him less as an agent of political power than a manipulator who tried to exploit political powers in order to achieve his own architectural and urban goals. Jean-Louis Cohen is Sheldon H. Solow Professor in the History of Architecture at New York University, specializing in nineteenth- and twentieth-century architecture and urbanism in Germany, France, Italy, Russia and North America, as well as contemporary issues in architecture, town planning, and landscape design. He is also a Chevalier des Arts & Lettres in France and a member of the Accademia di San Luca in Rome and the Russian Academy of Architecture. He is author of several books and was curator of the 2013 exhibition Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes at the Museum of Modern Art, in New York.

REVIVAGE DE LA FLAMME À L'ARC DE TRIOMPHE Arc de Triomphe From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This article is about the monument in Paris. For the horse race in Paris, see Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. For other uses, see Arch of Triumph (disambiguation). Arc de Triomphe The Arc de Triomphe at night Alternative names Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile General information Type Triumphal Arch Architectural style Neoclassicism Location Place Charles de Gaulle (formerly Place de l'Étoile) Construction started 15 August 1806 Inaugurated 29 July 1836 Height 50 m (164 ft) Technical details Other dimensions Wide: 45 m (148 ft) Deep: 22 m (72 ft) Design and construction Architect Jean Chalgrin, Louis-Étienne Héricart de Thury The Arc de Triomphe from the Place Charles de Gaulle The Arc de Triomphe is located on Paris's Axe historique, a large perspective that runs from the Louvre to the Arche de la Défense. The Arc de Triomphe (Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile) is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle (originally named Place de l'Étoile), at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. There is a smaller arch, the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, which stands west of the Louvre. The Arc de Triomphe (in English: "Triumphal Arch") honours those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I. The Arc de Triomphe is the linchpin of the historic axis (Axe historique) -- a sequence of monuments and grand thoroughfares on a route which goes from the courtyard of the Louvre, to the Grande Arche de la Défense. The monument was designed by Jean Chalgrin in 1806, and its iconographic program pitted heroically nude French youths against bearded Germanic warriors in chain mail. It set the tone for public monuments, with triumphant patriotic messages. L'arc de triomphe de l'Étoile souvent appelé simplement l'arc de triomphe, construit de 1808 à 1835 sur ordre de Napoléon, est situé à Paris dans le 8e arrondissement, sur la place de l'Étoile, à l'extrémité ouest de l'avenue des Champs-Élysées, à 2,2 kilomètres de la place de la Concorde. Haut de 50 mètres, large de 45 mètres et profond de 22 mètres, il est géré par le Centre des monuments nationaux1. La hauteur de la grande voûte est de 29,19 mètres et sa largeur de 14,62 mètres. La petite voûte, quant à elle, mesure 18,68 m de haut et 8,44 m de large. La place de l'Étoile forme un énorme rond-point de douze avenues percées au xixe siècle sous l'impulsion du baron Haussmann, alors préfet du département de la Seine. Ces avenues « rayonnent » en étoile autour de la place, notamment l'avenue Kléber, l'avenue de la Grande-Armée, l'avenue de Wagram et, bien sûr, l'avenue des Champs-Élysées. Des pavés de couleurs différentes dessinent sur le sol de la place deux étoiles dont les pointes arrivent pour l'une au milieu des avenues, pour l'autre entre les avenues. siyavash awesta david abbasi , najah mohammad ali alarabiya

Nouvelle Vague represents a very rare opportunity to own a new build property in central Paris. The central districts of this world famous city have a manmade border in the form of the 'Périphérique' ring road built in the 1970s, which means that unlike cities like London, Paris central zone is very clearly defined. With the city's strict planning laws and thousands of heritage properties, it is rare that new build properties such as these become available. This collection of just 73 studio and one to four-bedroom apartments lies on a 1.5 acre site adjacent to the river Seine. With a grand main entrance fronting the Quai d'Orsay, many of the properties at Nouvelle Vague enjoy amazing views across the river and towards the Notre Dame, Pantheon and even the Eiffel tower. These new build apartments in Paris are the first of their type to be built for 25 years and with only 600 properties built in the city each year this development represents over 12% of the city's entire new build construction quota for the year. Nouvelle Vague is being constructed by Paris' largest developer, who is vastly experienced at delivering high end urbanised projects within the city. The apartments at Nouvelle Vague will be built to the highest of specifications and will include terraces and balconies offering exceptional views over the Seine River and also across the exquisitely landscaped communal gardens. The unique design of the building by architect, Finn Geipel mirrors the contours of the river and provides a sun-facing exposure for each property. The Parisian Property Market Parisian property is currently popular with British, Russian, Brazilian and Italian buyers looking for competitively priced investment opportunities and freehold properties priced from €500,000 upwards. New build properties are relatively rare in Paris because the city is not spread out like London, instead it is contained by the Périphérique ring road which acts as a man-made border. In addition, strict building regulations mean that developers can't build above seven floors. This means that new build properties, be they geared investment opportunities or freehold new apartments are low in supply and heavily in demand. Get to know the area Paris is the most visited city in the world. With around 42 million tourists annually the city contains 3,800 historical monuments and four UNESCO World Heritage sites. This famous destination is today one of the world's leading business and cultural centres, and its influences in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world's major global cities. http://www.prestige-propertyonline.com/sale/paris-river-seine-e671000-e2156000/
