  • In a vast former armament plant, Cité du Design is an interesting mix of old and new, combining start-up incubator, design college and research center in 19th and 21st century buildings  more »
  • At the end of the Tourist Office, had to surrender to the former factory of weapons the MANU... What a shock! A beautiful DEFIGURE building by a rectangle of black glass and aluminum in which there are 2 small exhibition space (additional fees apply). The design that is has little interest... The rest of the building is huge, transformed in the greenhouse (in this scorching summer) what activities are they many staff? Another example of spending PHARAONIQUES on the back of the taxpayer... The mayor who helped this construction was very indifferent heritage!

  • Of the outstanding buildings of majestic volumes which serve great presentations of each biennial as well as evenings VIP. A loaded history site that passionate and creative people are reinventing without limiting it to the role of Museum. A living place where it feels good stroll, discover, learn.

  • Very pretty at night
  • The best in town
  • A tenth biennial very disappointing! Too much text, too much concept and little d object see not or are not functioning. A tip... take a guide I regret the first biennales which were less pretentious

  • Why not make an intellectual side and a practical side as the very first biennials that corresponded more to the public children are particularly bothered thanks for thinking to everyone

  • How to give an opinion on the TOUR of the DESIGN when ON do can never Y mount since SA CREATION in 2006? (cost EUR 2.3 million) IN fact today I wanted to go up there with a friend (I'm disabled and I walk very difficult). I was told that it had to pay an entry (8 euros) to visit the Design Biennale in order to access the Tower! But I can't visit the Biennale since I have walking difficulties. I just wanted to go up to the tower by lift! It's still amazing that the Saint-Etienne could not visit this tower, which was built with money from their taxes! I'm not Hervé Patouillard but Ms. Denise Patouillard, Hervé's mother. Plus I live 66 Street Bergson and I can see the Tower from my home, a shame. It's our EIFFEL Tower A we all same! Why have built it since it is forbidden to climb, I asked at City Hall several times, I was always told that we could not go up there! If the City Council wants to pay, it could allow some days in the week, put an attendant to operate the elevator and monitor, and make pay 1 or 2 euros! I'd like an answer. Thank you.
