The Dramman Files: L'Arc Macau Feb 2009
For those who do not know, L'Arc (aka L'Arch du Triomphe, The Arch & Royal Arch) is located one block south of Avenida de Amizade/Rua Cicade da Sintra, behind StarWorld, directly across the street from the Encore Macau tower. Here's a map.
Photos and commentary below are from Dramman. He went nuts circling L'Arc and brought back a ton of great photos.
L'Arc du Triumph
l'Arc: Almost done as you can see. I do not know if the building will look good, or simply garish. The construction in both style and method looks very Venetian-eque. One odd thing, its right next door to the ultramodern Rem Koolhaas-looking StarWorld Casino. The juxtaposition may be hideous... and to think Wynn Encore visitors will be treated to it.
[Left : thats Wynn Macau to the right. Right: Facing north on the east side of the building... that's StarWorld (and Ave Amizade) to the north - Ed]
[North side "L'Arc" entry, StarWorld is to the immediate left, Wynn Macau directly behind the photographer. - Ed]
