Last Friday, POD Architects embarked upon an adventure overseas. Following an early start at St Pancras International, we arrived in Paris by noon and with the sun on our backs, we began our tour by foot of some of the Architectural sites Paris has to offer. And who was there to guide us through the streets of the French capital, I hear you ask? Why, who better than POD’s own talented team?
Perhaps the most scintillating stops of the tour were the new urban Rive Gauche development, hosted by Jusik and Robert; Oscar Niemeyer’s fascinating headquarters for the French Communist Party, presented by Camila; and finally our Parisian adventure drew to a close with an afternoon of oysters, wine and escargot at the impossibly chic Brasserie Mollard. As we bid Paris adieu, the team felt a new found appreciation for French design, snails, and the Siene.
The one question on our minds as POD returned to the motherland: where next?
