Barcelona Pavilion by Mies van der Rohe

The Barcelona Pavilion was the first thing I wanted to see at Barcelona. As everyone maybe knows, I’m a huge fan of Mies van der Rohe and it’s always a dream come true to get to experience beautiful architecture on the spot. I wish I could’ve been able to capture the light as it was inside, reflecting from the light marble and transforming through the blue glass windows. So beautiful.

Le Cube by Scott Oster

One of the best shopping destinations in Paris is definitely Le Bon Marché. It is the first department store in the world, and the art deco -architecture is just fascinating. As it is located on the left bank, quite far from any tourist destinations, it is often very calm with only local Parisians strolling around. I personally love all the art and design furniture here and there in the department store, and also currently there is a gorgeous art installation, Le Cube, imagined by Scott Oster, as a part of an ongoing campaign.

Finally I was able to visit the Communist Party’s headquarters in Paris. It might sound a bit bizarre Saturday activity, but the gorgeous building, designed by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, has been on my must see -list for a long time. This weekend the whole Europe is celebrating European Heritage Days by opening many important offices and government buildings for public. If you are currently in Paris, I highly suggest to visit this one today.

MaisonCarre

Modern architecture is not the first thing that comes in mind when thinking about Paris and it’s Haussmann buildings. However, there are couple of gems worth visiting.

Maison Louis Carré, designed by Finnish Alvar Aalto is located 45 minutes outside of Paris and open for visitors every weekend. French art dealer Louis Carré was first considering Le Corbusier to design his new home but was not so convinced by his “colder” style such as use of beton.

Maison La Roche, designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret is located in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. It was designed for a Swiss banker and art collector Raoul La Roche.

Here’s my phone storage gems from this week;

-Céline finally joined Instagram and it is as good as I imagined it would be.

-I came accross to an article about Calvin Klein’s mansion in Miami, that he just sold. Also, as good as you could imagine it would be.

-Best thing since Nicolas Ghesquiére re-created Balenciaga’s space hat in 2008; Loewe’s breadloaf hat from AW17 collection.

-A sketch of Fondation Louis Vuitton by Frank Gehry

THE ROW through instagram, because that’s the closest we’ll get for now. No official pictures from the collection are published before the clothes are in the stores. I would say better strategy compared to see-now-buy-now.

I’ve never been too big  fan of celebrities-turned-designers, but Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen make an exception. Once again so beautiful and intimate presentation. And I would go to New York just for their new Jacques Grange designed store.
