Paris 26 Gigapixels

I have to agree with the A/N Blog that Paris 26 Gigapixels -- a rooftop panorama from the top of Saint Sulpice that stitches 2,346 individual hi-res photos -- is quite a way to while away some time. The mansard roofscape definitely dominates the foreground, and well-known sites (Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, etc.) are highlighted, but I spent a little bit of time looking for some recent architecture. What did I find?

[Centre Pompidou by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, one of the popular sites highlighted.]

[Institut du Monde Arabe by Jean Nouvel.]

[Bibliothèque Nationale François Mitterand by Dominique Perrault, behind the Pantheon.]

[La Grande Arche de La Défense by Johan Otto von Spreckelsen, surrounded by some of La Défense's other towers.]

[Tours Aillaud by Emile Aillaud, south of La Défense.]
