C'est magnifique ! Les horizontales avec plusieurs points de fuite, le raccord parfait avec les verticales, la composition avec le personnage juste là où il faut, et toutes les nuances de gris. C'est sans conteste l'une de mes photos préférées sur D.A. L'architecte serait sans doute ravi de voir cette image. Chapeau !
Ici: [link](Villeurbanne) - a lot of interesting images if you search "Villeurbanne Gratte Ciel" in google. It is a fantastic piece of architecture, if you ask me. Of course, the Town House - you see here its staircase - is a bit heavy and reminds a bit of the USSR architecture, but overall, the place really stands out.
I would not like to live in a complex that large and that intentional in its organization and structure. I am spoiled by the American experience of a free standing home with an area of personal dirt in the front or back or both. Still, the Google image search results -- none of which match your great photo -- suggest an interesting place and the Wikipedia entry was very instructive; suggesting a fascinating urban experiment.
Hmmm. My first link was broken. The (Villeurbanne) belonged to the link, and I thought I had "previewed" and tried. Sorry about that. I see that anyway, you have found info about it. I have experienced both - the American free standing home, with a small bit of green in the front and in the back, and the French condominium. I honestly don't mind living in the condo, except when it comes to the annual owner's meeting, where the nice neighbor that you have becomes for a couple of hour a completely different person, just because we are discussing money!
My favorite habitation was a converted light industrial space in downtown Manhattan. There was no organization or intention to permit people to "live" in the space and no direction as to where the "kitchen" or "bathroom" or other basic functions should go, though of course it was full of limitations (such as no heat or hot water). This was the best solution for me in that city because the trade-off was more open space.
Moi pas tellement. Je peux surement compter sur les doigts de la main les livres "SF" que j'ai lus. Malevil de Robert Merle, et un ou 2 autres. Je vais meme plus loin: je prefere des livres qui se passent de nos jours. Je dois manquer d'imagination!
je ne crois pas, tout au contraire. moi j'ai plongé dedans toute petite, au moment où on ne m'offrait que de la bibliothèque rose et puis verte ça a été un belle façon de s’échapper, et apparemment je n'ai plus oublié l’émerveillement.
I love the near optical illusion created here - reminds of something out of M. C. Escher's imagination! - view link - Did you manipulate this photo to achieve this; or is it naturally occurring? Where is this? I love this one, JD!
