Residential Building
Paris, France

That building is typical of the urban construction of apartment buildings in Paris at the end of the twentieth century- As a whole this project attests to the common language for residential buildings in the last decade of the twentieth century, found in many projects: modest and somewhat banal modernity that complies with the constraints of Parisian town planning.
