Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that.

Glad you and your colleague found it useful. I could go on and on about this subject.

Me too, I want to add your blog to my list of great blogs online.


This is exactly the type of info. I have been searching for. Thank you for taking the time to write such an informative post.

FL. Mall

I never thought that shopping malls have historical stories as well. But what I do love about this mall is the transition of architecture. I am glad that some of the original arcades still exist. They are one of the evidence of stories from the past of prominent people, architecture, culture, fashion and significant events.

Thanks for sharing this information. It just proved that Paris is a true pillar of architectural industry and fashion industry. I wish to hear and learn more from you.

Yes, this shopping is historical. I really keen to see it. When i will go Paris i will visit this shopping mall at every cost.

It must be so nice to walk the hall ways of this shopping mall. Its timeless architecture is very interesting. My imagination would run with fascination if I ever walked its halls. I would wonder around, thinking if Napoleon also walked this way. And I would imagine myself dressed like a woman of the court, greeting every person with kindness. Oh, how I wish I could do that!!

The arrival of metal engineering is an vital progression to which I will come back later, for it will have wide effects for structure and community space.

What Is One-Way Street?

One-Way Street [Einbahnstrasse, 1928] was Walter Benjamin's first effort to break out of the narrow confines of the academy and apply the techniques of literary studies to life as it is currently lived. For Benjamin criticism encompasses the ordinary objects of life, the literary texts of the time, films in current release, and the fleeting concerns of the public sphere. Following Benjamin's lead, this blog is concerned with the political content of the aesthetic and representations of the political in the media. As Benjamin writes in One-Way Street, "He who cannot take sides should keep silent."
