Tschumi’s Parc de la Villette in Paris.
It’s a precursor to Chicago’s Millennium Park.
The two urban parks do share a certain – object or form. At Parc de la Villette it looks like this:
” La Geode ” in the Paris park doubles as an IMAX Theater.
It shines and reflects and curves space in much the same way as a certain shiny object in a certain Chicago park that we have certainly written about – ” Cloud Gate ” – because that one is a shiny work of genius and we can’t get enough of it.
This, not purely round but in intriguing shapes, is a far superior work of art than the Geode in Paris. Theirs reflects space a la Newton, but ours bends space and light a la Einstein.
