Joyful play amidst Paris’ busy streets. A favorite local’s hangout, the Palais Royal’s inner courtyard (“Cour d’Honneur”) is filled with stripes, lines, and columns of different heights – obviously a playground for kids (of all ages). Actually a work of art by Parisian artist Daniel Buren, this creation was designed to make a former parking lot an attractive urban retreat and to hide air vents for new offices below. The striped architectural artwork is formerly known as “Les Deux Plateaux” (“Two Levels”), but locals know it as “Colonnes de Buren” or “Buren’s Columns.” I caught this young boy doing what young boys love — dashing and jumping from column to column.
