  1. Very latest information in this writing along with awesome designs of styles and structures.

  2. Except for the first pic in the series (the Les Jardins de Nabecor), which appears interesting, all others look like drab factory produced buildings with very little in terms of a response to the local and surrounding context, or even to their own purpose. I really think that French architecture and design has a lot more to offer than this.

  3. It would be interesting to see these in their context, to see how they work in terms of urban design. While their designs may not excel as standalone buildings, it seems like they fit well in the city, such as fronting a canal. Photographed as individual buildings out of context, they don't hold up to much better French architecture. Nevertheless, good or bad, these give an idea of what is going on in that corner of France.
