Visited in June 2015

Once it used to be a little scary with delinquent… But now it’s become “hip” neighborhood of Paris : with newly finished Philharmonie of Paris, Basin La Villette, Cent quatre culture centre, Eole garden, La Halle Pajol, La Villette park etc.

Boulevard Barbes, a little Africa in Paris with good vibes.IMG_0585 copy

Along the basin La Villette, lots of bars and cafes have been open, just like Canal Saint Martin.

St Christopher’s Inn Paris Canal, designed by Chaix & Morel associated. Interesting architecture language to create a pair of the original & the copy buidling. External shade would have been better with more refined form & treatment.
