nemausus1A quick snap from a car window: A public housing from the 80’s by French architect Jean Nouvel. There are two of these buildings next to each other, just some plane trees between. Looks like a three storey building, but actually it has seven storeys. Construction costs were cut by using cheap industrial material, but in a creative way. More info here.
