Shard in London, Courthouse in Paris...same architect😱Mind blown 🤯 #traveltuesday
Was looking through my Paris photo folder today and found this Lego building I shot from the top of Basilique Sacre Coeur and it got me wondering who’s is it🤔Googled it, and got well shocked finding out they were both by #renzopiano 😳
The new Futur Palais De Justice confirmed the intention of making a sustainable tower; Permasteelisa Group has installed photovoltaic panels on the façade, it is some of the environmental solutions employed in this project, setting a new benchmark for energy consumption in a very tall building (160m). They produce the equivalent of 2% of the total power consumption of the courthouse. Designed by architect Renzo Piano.
