The Perching Bar
Enjoying Champagne at the Arboxygene Perching Bar in the Foret de Brise Charette, in Verzy. It’s set 25 feet above the forest overlooking the rolling farmlands of the region. Today it’s a nightclub and restaurant, and a treetop hotel is planned, all connected by tall ramps.

The Cathedral at Reims burned down in the 1900s and was rebuilt. American John D. Rockefeller gave the money to rebuild the roof exactly how it was originally built. Andrew Carnegie’s heirs paid for a library nearby.
In a pedestrian area of Dijon, this public art stands alone.
