We love this scaffolding on Boulevard des Italiens for the bank LCL, a tromp l’oeil in a way  but with a quirky bent. Designed like a cardboard architectural model  with Sharpie markings, it even points out where the cash machine will  be located eventually. Turns out it’s by Athem, the same team who did the melting facade back in 2007. For a great lunch, stop by Le Paradis du Fruit nearby for smoothies  and salads au natural.
