Lattes, France Reviews & Notes
"Startchitect Jean Nouvel designed this city hall alongside, Francois Fontes, an architect from Montpellier, in a vivid blue, and over the Port Marianne Waterway on the banks of the Lez river. It's big! 90 meters long and 41 meters high, with office after office after office! It is for bureaucrats, after all. It opened in 2011.
It took its cue from the previous town hall, the Hotel de Région, which had the shape of the Arc de Triomphe."
"The Georges-Freche School of Hotel Management (Lycée Georges-Freche) was designed by Italian architects Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas and is constructed of triangular anodized aluminum panels over cast concrete. Some elevated walkways flow over the courtyard of the school."
"While I've never even been on the platform of the train station in Montpellier, I have a fondness for the city and those tracks, because, though we started from Nice, Montpellier was right about where my husband and I decided that we had lucked out beyond measure when we ended up sharing an overnight train ride in a four berth little cabin with a Canadian couple. Of course they were nice, because that's how Canadians are right? but they were also funny, and smart, and we spent then next several days eating, drinking, and laughing with them in Barcelona (our destination)
