Weekend in Paris

Just recovering from a jam packed action sight seeing weekend in Paris.

Went there on my own and saw the city at my pace (i.e. Super-fast), since I had been there before in July of 2003 I would afford to skip quiet a few sights. However, my new camera disagreed with the proposal of skipping all the ones that I had already seen.

These snaps (though very Postcard touristy stuff) made my trip worth while.

There were some contemporary projects that I had skipped last time (like the Institut du Monde Arabe by Jean Nouvel) that I had to see this time.

Here's some more of the Postcard stuff.

The real reason to go to Paris however, was to study the La Defense area of Paris as part of my studio research at the Berlage. So here some pics from there -

Lastly, heres a snap I've been wanting to take since a long time. Here's myself (or should I say myselfs) at the Bibliothèque nationale de France by Dominique Perrault
