Photographer's Note

On ne présente plus la géode...
Une photo que je sors de mes archives, et que je n'avais pas initialement trouvé postable.
Mais aujourd'hui, je trouve pas désagréable le contraste entre le premier plan rouge, et l'arrière plan légérement brumeux d'un matin de début de printemps dans lequel se fond la silhouette de la géode.

The Geode is located north-east of Paris, in a wide green area of 55 ha, "le Parc de la Villette".

La Villette in the eighteenth century was a farming village in the suburbs of Paris early bisected by the river "l'Ourcq". At the beginning of the nineteenth century, and to Paris approvisonner drinking water, the Canal de l'Ourcq was pierced and its extension, Napoleon fit widen the pool of La Vilette to feed fountains in Paris. It is from 1867 that Baron Haussmann decided to meet the domestic market in beef to La Villette: the Grande Halle could accommodate up to 4600 cattle.

The famous La Vilette slaughterhouses have closed their doors in 1974, leaving a wasteland of 55 hectares to be converted into a vast urban project whose initial mission was "requires that science and culture can meet there, whether a city garden, a garden in the city. "

The Geode hosts the first cinema in France in terms of attendance, dedicated exclusively to the showing of films on large format on its giant screen hemispheric of 1000 m2.
