La Grande Arche

I love La Grande Arche (de La Défense), although it doesn’t agree with my vertigo, and was thrilled to see this proposal from Stéphane Malka. The insertion of low cost (€3000) living units beautifully augments an already stunning building. Put me down for a unit near ground though me thinks.

I’ve been researching supermarket innovation recently and this popped up…MPreis is the best value full range supermarket in Austria but its looks are certainly deceiving. Its Tyrol’s most popular supermarket serving 150,000 customers a day and you can see why below. For further great images folloew the link at the bottom of the image. Incidently their website is a stunner too. Tesco, Sainsburys and Waitrose pleeeeese take heed!
