Paris and its surroundings are largely inspired by the work of contemporary architects. Imagine an outdoor experimental workshop, these modern builders have tried everything: spectacular ornamental edifices, such as the Grande Arche de la Défense or the Stade de France, to the surprising experimental constructions, in the image of the Cinémathèque francaise. Today, vertical architecture is back in style and its ecological aspect promises to change the face of the Parisian region for the next twenty years. The good news: architecture, which is always changing in an effort to adapt to the evolving populations, will continue to offer the same intensity to the metropolitan area. A firework of concrete, glass, metal and even greenery, just follow this guide and admire!
