This morning we visited an exhibit about architects designing exhibits. As always I am inspired by architecture.
This exhibit features Charollete Perrand. I love the feeling of enclosure this space creates.
After the exhibit a group of us headed to the catacombs.
I didn't expect to actually see the bones. Once I walked into the chamber and realized where I was it was cool. Many of the remains here are victims of the French Revolution. It was a sobering and sacred space. I'm not sure if taking pictures should be allowed, but it was.
These remains were moved from the Cemetery of the Innocents.
Afterwards I dragged everyone to the Montparnasse Cemetery nearby. I've always wanted to see a cemetery in Paris. I find them places of peace and reflection. I don't know why but I'm happy here.
The last stop of the day was La Defense. It's amazing the contrast it provided from the cemetery. Once again I love contemporary design.
This has been one of my favorite days in Paris.
