Les immeubles des seventies


Someone -I cannot remember who, sorry- once asked me on this blog if all Versailles buildings were old and beautiful. Here's the answer. This is Satory neighbourhood.
----------------------------
Un jour une personne m'a demandé ici sur ce blog si tous les immeubles versaillais étaient vieux et beaux. Voici la réponse avec deux vues du quartier de Satory.

Very different building. I like the colorful mosaic.

A picture is worth a thousand words, it has been said by someone...

Nice, modern buildings. At first glance I thought you had polarized the top photo, but now I see they are painted that way. I like very much!

Certainly not what I think of when I consider Versailles, but after all it is a living city, not just a historical display.

Colorful but still looks nice to me. I am wondering what that round knob is in the front of the photo. . .

Tu as raison . . .

Those buildings are so cool. I am glad to see that high rises in your area don't look so sterile, like they do in so many other area.

en effet bien dans le style 70/80...on retrouve ces mosaiques..je trouve qu'elles ont bien tenues avec le temps, elles ont étés rénovés ?

Not bad, I quite like the modern Versailles. Is it true that Satory is an Army quarter?

@ Olivier : je n'en ai aucune idée mais j'imagine qu'ils ont au moins passé le karcher ;-)
@VP : yes, it is. There are several barracks in the immediate vicinity of these buildings. They aren't however, housing only army families.

Very modern, and I bet it is very expensive like the others buildings in Versailles.

Des années soixante dix bien sûr ! Je me souviens avoir vu construire dans ces années là le quartier de l'Europe à Vandoeuvre (Nancy), c'était (et c'est resté) ce style.
Mais, aurait-on les moyens de loger le peuple dans des châteaux style Versailles ? De plus nous avons d'autres exigences du point de vue commodités.
(Salles de bain, WC)
Et puis nous aimons manger chaud, il ne faut plus que les cuisines soient à l'autre bout des bâtiments.

Hmmm. Could be almost anywhere. But after all, people do need a place to live.

B SQUARED said...

Well, they are colorful...

Halcyon said...

Ah, ha... la banlieue ! Je préfère quand même le vieux quartier.

Sharon Van Lieu said...

Interesting. I like how they used the images to improve the plain lines.

Interesting buildings, but I prefer the old, historic buildings of your town. They have more to say.

Je me demande ce que dirait Le Nôtre des arbres en ceramique!!!
