I spent around 1 hour walking around this neighborhood to check out all 20+ (I guess residential) buildings with such wall paintings, in a beautiful morning. I have never seen or heard before of such a place. Totally worth it for architecture and design lovers....More

I didn't actually do the outside tour of the painted walls as currently there is a marvellous exhibition inside the museum building focusing on the electrically household gadgetry of the post-WWI era (runs until the end of 2014). It's not an enormous space or an...More

The Musée Urbain de Tony Garnier is essentially a series of 14 outdoor murals that depict Tony Garnier's vision of a Utopian city. The murals are on the sides of housing units, the only section of the plan that was ever built, so you take...More
