Not far from the suburb La Grande Borne we visited also the suburb Evry south of the city of Paris. Evry has a totally other outlook than La Grande Borne. It was interesting to see the differences between these two new towns.

Evry was interesting, because at one hand you could distinguish each apartment by its colour and by the way they were heaped like a pyramid. At the other hand there were artworks like this peculiar blue cones, looking like frozen water out of proportion, which causes the same alienating feeling as the huge paintings in La Grande Borne. It was as if it was not designed for human beings in a living area because of lack of human scale.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
