Amazing Paris has always something hidden, though not necessary new, for tourists. This time we have discovered PARC ANDRE CITROEN. On the grounds of a Citroen factory, a most beautiful, uniquely designed, interesting and enjoyable park was built. It includes plants, water falls, two giant green houses of an interesting design and materials, bridges, etc. The park is serounded by buildings of contemporary architecture. We have spent there three enjoyable hours. It is highly recommended to visit the place in a nice weather day.

The fabulous thing about Parc Andre-Citroen is the feeling one gets that Jacques Tati is about to come around the corner and switch the fountains off. It is a modernist garden in a very 1950s or 60s sense full of quirky planting and optimism. The resident hot air balloon adds to the atmosphere of informality and fun - it's the perfect place for children on a hot summer's day.

Fans of Alice and Wonderland will be delighted by the many avenues and sloping water channels - a garden where one could follow the White Rabbit for a long time. The PAC is an arcadian dream for a contemporary urban city, it reinterprets the traditional idyllic garden without ever becoming a brutalist or merely fashionable vision.

I can't help feeling that the Thames Barrier Park has been inspired by Parc Andre Citroen - what a shame that it has neither the interest, subtlety, nor the ambition of the latter. Then again, it may not be finished yet so perhaps London will get a public space as wonderful as this - one can only hope.....
