brutal bobigny

End of 2019 we made a trip to Paris and London by train to follow the brutal architecture path. One destination: Bobigny - a suburb of Paris and for sure a hidden gem for brutalism fans.

Getting to Bobigny was pretty easy with public transport and once you are disembarking the train and leaving the station the sheer beauty of brutalist 70esque architecture emerges.

We spent almost two to three hours there, following one of our very reliable guides and walking along the main road there. Especially the hotel de ville was a very impressive building. It was built in 1974 by Marius Depont, who also built the very remarkable church there in 1980. 

Next stop: Paris downtown with more impressive buildings worth to share in another blog post.
