Le Havre didn’t really show a sunny side. But there still was some interesting and crazy things to find. The architecture stuff of Oscar Niemeyer was impressive from inside and outside, looking like a volcano caldera, housing a theater and a huge public library. But the building materials were quite a wrong decision, inevitably producing damages. Several roofs were lacking, so they had buckets at a lot of places to collect the water dripping in - at least the buckets had a label of Oscar Niemeyer - they really know how to solve problems! It was interesting! I‘m really thinking of declaring the vacation as a business trip, it was highly educational to me.

It's a theater complex and the most prestigious building in the center of town, designed by a famous architect, part of the reconstruction after the war. But a lot of people think it looks like a yogurt cup, and I agree. I was shocked at the sight, and not in a good way. Come and judge for yourself.

OMG! What is this? During the daytime it is huge and imposing and not attractive at all. They are public buildings and serve a purpose but they are truly ugly and folks either walk on by or stop to be puzzled by the ugly design.

There’s not a lot to do in Le Havre (but we like the shopping). So we walked by. We did not go inside as we were not interned in the theater or library.

If you go to the downtown of La Havre you can not miss those two modern architecture buildings. One in a shape of a volcano is a concert hall, and the second is in the shape of a flying saucer is a library. Amazing architecture.

Le Volcan is both a library and theatre and you can just walk in. Even if you don’t go inside, this building is worth a look for its novel design and architecture. Worth 20 minutes or so.

Wondered what this building was so wandered in for a look around.
It is a big library and theatre stage, amazing for the locals with some people just sat around reading in quiet areas. The cafe was also good value for snacks and coffee

A modern French town where the Seine River meets the English Channel. Le Havre was almost completely destroyed during WW11 and has been rebuilt as a beautiful modern city with just touches of the few historic buildings that have remained. It is an architects’ town beginning with the Museum of Art and the Le Volcan, an auditorium and library. Check out the schedule before planning your trip if you want tickets. The downtown area near the Le Volcan is complete with pedestrian promenade of bars, restaurants and small shops

Like a volcano rising from the pavement this curved building designed by Oscar Niemeyer houses the national stage and a huge media library. There is a modern hand sculpture and water feature on one side

Our shuttle bus dropped us across from this modern looking building complex. One building looks like a volcano and is the concert hall. The other one that looks like a flying saucer is the library. The complex was designed by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, and is an eye catching landmark in Le Havre.
I fell in love with this multimedia library, so spacious and comfortable; the furniture in the children’s section is so adorable. The adult section has different areas for books, audios and videos. You can spend all day there to read, listen to music or talks and watch videos. Even their introduction video was well made. At the Volcano, because it was summer time there were no concerts. But the visitor information is there. The staff was helpful and friendly. Even if you don’t need information, just go there to take a look. Highly Recommended.
Happy Travelling!
