today me and harry decided to be super efficient and go visit as many architecture buildings as possible. And because i dont have a phone with internet, i gotta do all the google map searching beforehand and screenshot them all. Our tour was in the order of:
1) Arab world Institute by Jean Nouvel
2) Les Docks by Jakob + MacFarlane
3) Pathe Foundation by Renzo Piano (opens in September so we only saw it from outside but it was still cool)
4) Cartier Foundation by Jean Nouvel
5) Meditation Space by Tadao Ando

nice sitting/hangout area by the seine
cute exit signs at Les Docks ^
Pathe Foundation. This is the only shot taken before we got kicked out by the security guard.
i would say this self architecture tour was a success, look at how many buildings we covered! each building we spent about 10 minutes on average. Efficiency @ 120%. Next time will be a deep tour where we spend the whole day just on one building.
happy july 4th! i celebrated it by first, eating a huge burger.
i miss America!
For the weekend, we visited Louvre at Lens. Did you know there were 3 Louvre museums in France?! I have yet to visit the third one but this one was pretty cool. The building is designed by SANAA, landscape done by a French firm I donno…
Our train back to Paris from Lens wasn’t until the evening so we got to relax and chill without rushing. Here are the photos.
my favorite art of the day.
and the second favorites…
cafeteria where we spent the most of the time eating and talking instead of looking at arts
cool back pack man
It’s like the building perfectly blends into the gray sky.
And the below are pictures from Arras. It is a small town we stopped by on our way back to Paris.
I ❤ piazzas.
How was your July 4th? Now that I’m away from America, all I want to do is super American things. Like right now, it would be perfect to have a bbq party at someone’s backyard….
Happy July 4th everyone, hope you had a lot of good food and much fun. =)
