Les Deux Plateaux
Inside the paved courtyard of the Palais Royale, one of my favorite places in all of Paris, Daniel Buren’s 260 uneven black and white striped columns have recently been revealed. When it was first installed in the 80s, it was controversial: Hey! What’s that modern art doing outside this historic building! But it seems the French have chilled a little in the past two decades and now they're quite proud of the installation.
