Here’s What It Would Look Like If Paris’s Houses Could Fly

Here’s What It Would Look Like If Paris’s Houses Could Fly

This is so much fun…

Looking at Chehere’s images of Paris houses with stories to tell. Easy to admire for those who are still living in very indivisualised environments.

Although all of us are student time admirers of Baron Haussmann (or at least were taught passionately by those who were), and of Bath, and of Urban Design Controls, this post and it’s content provided an interesting look. Looking back on what was ingrained into us as charming, one tends to agree with the photographer Laurent Chehere. “This guy tried to destroy half of Paris and build the same building 20,000 times,” Nice take, Laurent. And good on ya for coverage, Henry.
