Modern architecture in Bordeaux

I already wrote this before: in the old part of Bordeaux, with modern architecture its the same as with modern art: you don't see much of it, but what you see is of great quality. By the way, it looks like if there is just little modern art or architecture, because you are overwhelmed by the enormous quantity of beautiful old buildings, monuments and squares...

Halfway the cathedral and Place Gambetta.

Same, reflected in another modern building.

The savings bank at the Mériadec shopping centre (tramway!).

The modern part of the court of justice, next to a 14th century tower of the Hâ fortress.

The music academy.

The civil service school.
