Listed as a historical monument in 1921, the Old Stock Exchange is today one of Lille’s most emblematic sights. Booksellers, florists and tango dancers meet there regularly, but probably without a second thought for the man who constructed this magnificent monument. Lire cet article

And Lille gets shod thanks to Christian de Portzamparc

The Credit-Lyonnais Tower, renamed Lille Tower (Tour de Lille) in 2006, is one of the greatest architectural peculiarities of the Flanders’ capital. A 116-metre high peculiarity to be exact. But despite its shoe shape, it was never intended to be so named but is more the sum result of the complex equation posed to its “cobbler”: the architect Christian de Portzamparc. Lire cet article

Culture : the dead festivals’ society

Culture is like butter, the less there is the thinner it has to be spread. From now on, government bodies and the general public are just going to have to tighten up their belts and make do with less. Remember, just a few weeks ago when we issued a first warning on this subject, even Didier Super joined in. For his edition of L’Humanité published 14th April in collaboration with an extremely upset Philippe Torreton, chief editor for the day, a map of all the cancelled festivals, some definitively, was created. The most telling absence: no regional capital of culture, unless there’s an unexpected turn of events. An absence that indicates the extent of the damage. Coming soon..a funeral service? Well here’s hoping it isn’t quite that bad yet. Lire cet article

The first victims of an aviation accident crashed… in the Pas-de-Calais

The tragic crash in the Alps currently in the news reminds us of other aeroplanes lost over the years. The accident of which we are about to speak though has had to take a back seat: logical, for it did not involve an aeroplane but an air balloon. And it was a long time ago. In 1785, two men, one of which was Pilâtre de Rozier, tried to cross the English Channel by means of a new form of locomotion. They were to crash on the point of Wimereux, thereby reserving their place in history as the first victims of an aviation accident. Lire cet article
