Les Deux Plateaux

Les Deux Plateaux

Paris, France

In the courtyard of the Jardin du Palais Royal is Daniel Buren’s installation of black-and-white striped columns (officially known as “Les Deux Plateaux”). They have caused a lot of controversy since they were installed in 1986. Apparently the mayor of Paris even tried to stop this installation.
This is an overview. There are about 260 of these columns in varying heights meant to contrast with the historic columns of the arcade.

Beautiful image, Charlene with a wonderful point of view. What was the purpose in placing these modern columns in this delightful courtyard? Very odd but a fine photo. Excellent detail. BV

Well, they certainly do contrast with the historic architecture. Nicely captured, but I can't say I like the installation. V.

A great look at the Jardin buildings. I can't say I'm crazy about the installation. V
