Extraordinary architecture: futurism from the 70s

Last week I went to La Grande Motte, an impressive city created in France in 1974 to be populated with tourists during the summer. La grande Motte (7) la grande motte (5) la grande motte (4) La grande Motte (6)

Why do I blog this? The architecture is very intriguing to me, very stylish and not passé at all; I like the shape, the colors and the global impression (it reminds a bit of UC Irvine's computer science building); a real sci-fi place.
