Cite de la Mode et du Design

The translation of the name would sound the city of fashion and design and it’s the place where you can find the French Institute of fashion. The building is located beside the Seine, between the Gare d’Austerlitz and the Bibliotheque nationale de France. It is well-known because of bold modern architecture.

Islamic Art Wing, The Louvre

The Louvre museum had opened the new wing devoted to Islamic art. To build a structure it cost 80 million pounds and it took a lot of time to built with. The Islamic Art wing is fitted with a wave-like, gold tinted rooftop which has been likened both to a flying carpet and sand dunes in the desert.

Parc Andre Citroen

It is a public space which was built on the site of an old Citroen factory. Its flat green lawns, dancing fountains and individually-designed peripheral gardens give the French formal garden a modern twist. A tethered hot air balloon gives an alternative view of the park and city.

Centre Pompidou

The Centre Pompidou was described as “love at second sight” by National Geographic, but then The New York Times admitted that the design of it “turned the architecture world upside down”. Designed by architect Renzo Piano and British one Richard Rogers in 1971, with its exposed skeleton of brightly coloured tubes for mechanical systems it was really a surprise of those days. But now it’s one of the most famous modern buildings if not in the world than for sure in Paris.
