  • I looked forward to the opening of the new Philarmonie by Jean Nouvel. Architecturally amazing I was able to find the perfect acoustic at a concert held in the great Hall Pierre Boulez. A must see, can be visited every day even without necessarily at a concert. Pity that not even the Cité de la Musique appear in the data base of TA.

  • A very nice green space which combines large lawns (accessible to all that was innovative for its time) and cultural and recreational facilities (splurge in reference to the parks of the 18th). All returns to an outdated design green spaces without real connection with the city and with a very controlled space away from nature.
