Modern Urban Art Hits Paris 17

Our little corner of Paris is not the most contemporary and cutting-edge the city has to offer - think old ladies in fur coats with small dogs, rather than young bobos in Marc Jacobs with It-bags - so I was somewhat taken aback (but rather pleased) to find a piece of urban art 500m from away from our résidence, which materialised overnight just before Christmas and happily, is still there, in front of the fire station.


I like the way it looks like a little tower, as if someone could actually live in it, stand on the balconies and look out over Paris.

Love the contrast with the surrounding architecture! I wonder how long it'll be there – or is it permanent?

I think it's permane,t - it disappeared for a couple of days just after Christmas, but then reappeared and has been there ever since.
