A sleek and elegant extension to Universite Paris Diderot by Paris based architects Antonini and Darmon. An extra reason for liking this extension is the contemporaneity of it! In other words : we dont have to be traumatised once more with post-post-modern, post-neo-classical (see, Athens,London, Belgrade, etc) and any type of mediocre forms that claim to be ‘respecting’ the original building. Extensions are different than the original bulding by default! Conservationists give us a break !
