#nosweekends #ourweekends Tripoli hors des sentiers battus/Tripoli off the beaten path 2/2 🇫🇷Niemeyer était un amoureux du corps des femmes et un génie du béton et de la courbe. Il a conçu la foire de Tripoli comme un grand espace ouvert, parsemé de plans d’eau dans lesquels les bâtiments se reflètent. Plutôt que de se conformer à la typologie usuelle des foires marquée par des pavillons indépendants juxtaposés, il a dessiné une “immense couverture en forme de boomerang de 750 mètres de longueur par 70 mètres de largeur, sous laquelle les différents pays viendraient installer librement leurs espaces d’exposition” (Jad Tabet) L’endroit est très agréable pour un pique-nique ou une ballade. Malheureusement il faut un permis pour y entrer. Vous pouvez également essayer de négocier avec les gardes à l’entrée. ---------- 🇺🇸Niemeyer’s work routinely invoked the female body: he was the king of the curve and concrete. He designed the Tripoli Fair as a very big open space, dotted with bodies of water reflecting the buildings. Rather than comply with the usual typology of fairs, marked by juxtaposed independent pavilions, he designed a “huge boomerang-shaped cover of 750 meters long by 70 meters wide, under which the countries would freely install their exhibition spaces” (Jad Tabet). The place is ideal for a picnic or a walk. Unfortunately, you need a permit to visit it. But you can always try to negotiate with the guards at the entrance, it works sometimes.
