Mansart à l'ombre

Archive photo of Alexandre 1er place I've shown you before (also here) with the statue of the builder of Versailles, Jules-Hardouin Mansart in the shade on the right!

Photo de l'année dernière, la place Alexandre 1er joignant l'avenue des Etats-Unis à l'avenue de Saint-Cloud, que je vous montrais ici et ici, avec la statue du bâtisseur de Versailles, Jules Hardouin-Mansart à droite.

Wunderbar, wo die Bäume größer als die Häuser zu sein scheinen.

Ein gutes Wochenende dir.

I assume that Mansart is the person whose name is used to describe the Mansart shaped roof, such as the yellow building with the red trim on on the right.

@ Dave: yes. "Fenêtre mansardée" is Mansart style window, "mansarde" is small roof room etc.

A lovely view with the tree leaves emerging. The buildings are similar is stature but have such varied facades.
