La seine musicale is a musical center built on the Ile Seguin where Renault factory was based during the 20th century. The buildings were demolished in 2005 and the renovation project of the Island started with the signature of -of course- Jean Nouvel. La seine musicale was opened in April 2017.
The gardens were designed in the 17th century, by André Le Nôtre upon the request of Louis XIV. The gardens cover 800 hectares of land and the works lasted around 40 years. During summer, every saturday the gardens organize the musical fountains shows. The funniest part is when you pass by people all dressed up with royal custumes with an Iphone in one hand, and a diet coke in the other. [more photos]
