Walk 2 Theme: Contemporary Architecture
Paris is internationally admired for its uniform, strictly controlled architecture, but this 19
th
 century neo-classical model is also one that has prevented a certain audacity since. Look carefully though and you’ll find a sprinkling of areas, mainly at the edges of the city, wherean interesting and varied selection of buildings has been allowed to develop.This walk concentrates on two of these areas, taking you away from the comforting,unchallenging forms of Haussmannian Paris. These riverside districts have been inpermanent mutation for the past 30 years, and represent zones where new and daringstructures are springing from the ground. Previously given over to industry, they are todayseeing regeneration towards new uses and are providing a whole new focal point for Paris.Featuring not only architecture in a traditional sense but also parks, bridges, galleries, shopsand libraries, this is a walk which offers you many opportunities to pop in and pop out atyour own leisure. You can also choose just one location and simply relax and admire therest!
