These buildings look very 70's to me! LOL.
The statues in the picture in the middle have a "Gaudian" look.

Just a question Olivier: What does "APN" mean? (you wrote it in a comment in my CDPB).

Denton a dit…

What are the blue sculptures in your second photo? Are they pyramids?

Olivier a dit…

Bonjour.

Pour Edulabbe : APN est l'abreviation d'Appareil Photo Numerique.

Pour Denton : La sculpture bleue est une sculpture faisant partie de la place des miroirs (post demain) elle fait partie du quartier des pyramides, mais je n'arrive pas a trouver le nom de la statue et le nom de l'auteur. C'est le probleme des villes nouvelles, il n'est pas facile de trouver l'histoire.

Merci pour vos visites



Hello.

For Edulabbe: APN is the abbreviation of Camera Numerical.

For Denton: The blue sculpture is a sculpture belonging to the place of the mirrors (post tomorrow) it belongs to the district of the pyramids, but I do not arrive has to find the name of the statue and the name of the author. It is the problem of the new cities, it is not easy to find the history.

Thank you for your visits

i agree with edulabbe, its very 70s. But the elevated floors, the huge cement sign, that stone scupture (monument?) made up for it. I'm liking it!

Kala a dit…

these buildings and shapes are sooo unusual it reminds me of the interesting looking buildings in Spain and on the M.I.T. campus in Cambridge =)

Sally a dit…

1/5 of all Evry - that's a significant proportion.

Thanks for the birthday wishes, too.

Jazzy a dit…

that's a lot of flats...
like the graffiti in the first photo.

Lisi a dit…

those are surely some interesting looking architecture :-)

Great place, art is around that district, I like when authorities know that cement is not the only thing that must grow in the city.
