I finally got around to checking out the big green caterpillar of a museum, also know as "Les Docks" [or the Cite de la Mode et du Design], the big lime colored squiggly building that floats on the docks of the Seine in the 13th. The space, which is to host artists-in-residence, a few design/ fashion shops, cafes and bars, and an upcoming roof bar, is currently hosting exhibits from the Musee Galliera, while it is under renovation. A very interesting choice to have both Balenciaga and Comme des Garcons expos next to one another, the contrasts are too many to list....so you'll just have to check it out yourself.
Les Docks - cité de la Mode et du Design 34 quai d’Austerlitz 75013 Paris
