PARC DE LA VIL­LETTE

Built be­tween 1984 and 1987, the Parc de la Vil­lette was part of one of the big­gest re­de­vel­op­ment projects in Paris. It now houses a science mu­seum and three con­cert halls.

NEW ACROP­O­LIS MU­SEUM

Hous­ing an­cient ru­ins, this is one of the ar­chi­tect’s most con­tro­ver­sial build­ings as it’s meant as a repos­i­tory for the El­gin mar­bles, the Parthenon friezes housed in the British Mu­seum.

ALE­SIA MU­SEUM

Com­mem­o­rat­ing a bat­tle be­tween Julius Cae­sar and the Gauls in 52 BC, this strik­ing struc­ture is built on a pre­ex­is­tent ar­chae­o­log­i­cal site. Lo­cated in the coun­try­side of cen­tral France, it fea­tures ex­hibits from the site and recre­ations of the bat­tle.
