Photographer's Note

Paris 75019
Octobre 1989

Picture taken at Paris La-Villette.

The Parc de la Villette is situated at the outer edge of the 19th arrondissement, bordering Seine-Saint-Denis. It was designed by Bernard Tschumi. At 25 hectares, these former slaughterhouse grounds constitute the largest park in the city of Paris and its second largest greenspace (after the Père Lachaise cemetery). The park houses public facilities devoted to science and music, and many follies. Tschumi won a major design competition for the park and discussed his design proposal with Jacques Derrida.

It also holds :

Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie : a the biggest science museum in Europe.
La Géode : an Omnimax dome theatre.
