18th and19th boroughs of Paris in France

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.
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.
Building of Des Amiraux Swimming Pool (Piscine des Amiraux)
Designed by Henri Sauvage around 1922-1927
Social housing influenced by hygienism movement
