Bordeaux in 101 sites & buildings is the best publication to present a city which is definitely done with the “Sleeping Beauty” cliché. Visitors, in holidays or on a business trip, can take advantage of this special issue and discover the unique cultural diversity of Bordeaux.
From tram to train, left bank to right, Médoc to Landes, Bordeaux Métropole (the conurbation’s new name) is pulsating with renovation, transformation and invention. Such projects include the wet dock district and Cité du Vin, Rives d’Arcins and construction of a new bridge entrusted to Rem Koolhaas and La Bastide with its superb municipal archives building, designed by talented Belgian architects Robbrecht & Daem.
The aim of this special edition, the 9th in the series, here updated, is to provide the reader with tools for understanding and discovering the city. It focuses on 101 buildings, but in fact embraces far more through texts and images reflecting man’s inventiveness down the years. It offers a well-documented, appreciative journey through time and space, reflected in the 101 faces of a city whose beauty quite takes the visitor’s breath away.
