les grands moulins de paris - 24 photos

Photos of the Grands Moulins de Paris as they stood before their renovation.­

The Grands Moulins de Paris was an abandoned industrial mill in Paris, part of the ZAC Rive Gauche, near the Gare d'Austerlitz.­ It has been converted into student dorms for the University Paris VII.­

I took those photos shortly before the construction work started.­ Everything you see on those photos does not exist anymore (except for the walls).­
