Paris - small Murmansk
Judging by the words of Murmansk - Paris is just as dirty a city as Murmansk. Let's see and compare where it is cleaner - in Murmansk or in Paris!
But it's better to start with the video:

In Paris, the most beautiful stops in the world - you see how elegant they are. How all details are thought out, what a stunning design. There is another option when the grass grows above. At the bus stop built-in lights and all the necessary information.
In Paris, near the Eiffel Tower is the Orthodox center, about which I told you. I really liked the architecture of the pictures, although usually everything that the Russian Orthodox Church does is very conservative. These are the Holy Trinity Cathedral and the Russian Spiritual and Cultural Center. The complex consists of four buildings, the territory is part of the Embassy of the Russian Federation in France and has diplomatic immunity. Look, what a beauty!
This was done by French architect Jean Michel Wilmotte. The church was opened in 2016.Absolutely atypical architecture for the Russian Orthodox Church. Looks very cool!
The materials of which the building is built - a stone with glass inserts with gold. Near several buildings of the Russian cultural center, all built in the same style. Immediately gymnasium. It teaches the law of God, the Russian language and literature, the history of Russia, singing, there is a preschool program.
Unfortunately, the Russian Orthodox Church does not allow any experiments, it is very negative about any attempts to interpret biblical events and the near-religious theme - performances, painting - everything that is connected with religion. This immediately offends the feelings of believers. On the other hand, there is the Catholic Church, and you know that everything is much better in Catholic countries with architecture.
The architecture of the church itself is a monument of modern architecture. It reflects the latest trends, and it's nice to come there. The church should fight for the parishioners, should attract young people to its ranks. And how can you attract young people with such a super-conservative position in art and architecture? I believe that the church should be modern and keep up with the times.Including this should be expressed in architecture.
This is the embankment of the river Seine, which was given to pedestrians. Previously, there was a car traffic, there were even traces of markings.
Now they have made bicycle parkings, trainers, small playgrounds, benches - easy improvement.
They did not drastically alter anything, no one began to pave the kilometers of tiles, like ours, but they began to put things in order by simple means.
They did not quickly redo everything for pedestrians, but made simple decisions - they put trees in tubs, benches, and put paint on the asphalt.
All this can be done quickly, it does not require any special costs, and then you can watch. Because it happens that some decisions in the city are wrong. And even in the case of this quay, the decision is not wrong, but very true, but theoretically it could turn out that after the closure of the traffic on this street there would be a traffic collapse in the city. And how to fix, if all of you are covered with tiles, planted trees here, have spent billions of euros?
Therefore, the French made it so that in case of what it could be easily corrected and moved.
For several years now they have been observing how this embankment lives, what people are doing here, what activities, what is missing. Move boxes, make new zones - live design. And in the end, I think, they will do everything thoroughly - here the tile will appear, and a more comprehensive improvement, and normal trees will be planted. But now they are not in a hurry. Approximately the same as they did in New York in Times Square:
Broadway did not immediately become what it looks like now - for about 5 years they watched, looked, tried on, arranged chairs and benches, marked the zones with paint, and only when they realized what everything should be, did it thoroughly.
This is a very correct approach, which is lacking in Russia. We love to do immediately for ages. And when it turns out that the decision is wrong, nothing can be done about it.
And this is my favorite area on this embankment, because in such a little corner, which used to be a simple wasteland, they made a playground.
But the most important thing is just a fantastic obstacle course that was made along the wall.
This is just a great example of how to make a playground without a place - just on the wall.Children are delighted with this thing!
Zones with sports equipment
New descent to the embankment
There used to be cars here, now people are running and walking
In some places, collect summer cafes
They put containers, tables, chairs, large tables with sofas. As a temporary solution, it all looks pretty good. They sell ordinary fast food, but the design of the cafes look very cool - they do not look like our beer halls with umbrellas. These are stylish places that do not spoil the appearance of the city.
Another idea of the zone for children, which does not take up much space, is simply a blackboard on which you can draw something with chalk.
In French reality, she did not survive for a long time. It was quickly painted from spray cans, and now it is not very suitable for drawing something on it. But it can easily be painted black again. An inexpensive and easy way to make an attraction point of activity in a city.
Here we have a bridge. I have never seen this before. Please note: there is an upper level that connects the 2 banks of the Seine, and there is a lower level that connects embankments. Here, the distance is about 4 meters, you can go to the lower level from the embankment.It turns out actually 2 bridges connected in one.
Another option is a temporary summer cafes - these are moored to the shores of the ship.
See how beautiful and atmospheric!
When the embankment was given to cars, it would be impossible to open such.
On the embankment wash garbage cans. Hi Murmansk!
Walking around old Paris. There is absolutely no place here, narrow streets without a sidewalk, but they still manage to make bicycle lanes.
Another embankment, which gave people. There used to be cars
You can meet and such
This is Republic Square - one of the main protest areas. There are constantly rallies, from here begin many demonstrations. Now there are just a lot of people here, someone is painting, someone is riding bicycles and electric scooters. Wet tile is not a puddle, but an interesting fountain. On the sidewalk just flowing water on which you can walk. Pretty cool stuff.
And now we will please the Murmansk officials! I came to the 19th arrondissement of Paris and found srach here.
Look: bottles, jars, bags, some clothes. So, now you can safely not take out the garbage in Murmansk and say that we are in Paris! True, in this case, garbage is the only thing that will unite Murmansk with Paris.
In Paris, there are drawbacks. True, I am not sure that this should somehow reassure and justify the srach that we have, because we do not have the virtues that we have in Paris. And we came to study the architecture of postmodernism.
This residential complex "Organs of Flanders" is a whole block in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, there are 4 residential towers for 1950 apartments, the highest tower of 39 floors and 123 meters in height.
This complex, built in the 1970s. There is a kindergarten, a nursing home, several buildings and other architecture. Architect Martin van Trek. This is a Parisian post-modern architect of German origin.
For the sample, he took the organ pipes, respectively, and the name of the complex from here, and the names of the towers. Here is a prelude, fugue, contant and sonata.
When designing this complex, the endoscope was used for the first time - it is used by doctors to see what is in your stomach, and the architects use it to imagine how a person inside the building will feel.
When I studied at the Moscow Architectural Institute, we had a whole endoscopy room there. It was possible to take a model and look at the human level - you walk along the streets and understand how they look in reality. Now this is not necessary, because there is computer graphics.
Due to the fact that the area is not in the most successful place in Paris and was not very well built, in the 90s there were problems with crime. Now everything seems to be normal, although, of course, the population here lives a very peculiar one.
But inside there is everything you need, even a pool.
The apartments are sloping, go terraced in different directions, hanging down like sheer cliffs.
Flower pots were planned in front of the windows, in some places they grew up, but residents do not particularly care about it, on all the balconies are desolate. And in vain, the potential is good!
One tower was reconstructed. Towers as pipes of an organ go with ledges.
Such is the unusual LCD!
Under the windows shit, throw garbage - bomzhatnik.
