In the last few days, Paris has been in the news and on our minds for all the wrong reasons... tragic reasons. And still, there is no doubt that with its indomitable spirit and enduring troves of art and culture, the city -- and France itself -- will overcome.

Lance Hosey | Posted 11.02.2015 | Arts

If architectural forms genuinely are meant to benefit society, as Hadid's own partner claims, more form presumably means more benefit, so what's the objection to it being replicated? At worst, the designers already had been compensated, so what's the harm?

The French have been reading the tea leaves. Despite or perhaps because of recent violence, there seemed a new spirit of generosity towards tourists, if not to migrants.
