1. Los Pès del parpalhòl

Show sight on map

Jessica Stockholder is a Canadian-American artist known for site-specific installation works and sculptures that are often described as "paintings in space." She came to prominence in the early 1990s with monumental works that challenged boundaries between artwork and display environment as well as between pictorial and physical experience. Her art often presents a "barrage" of bold colors, textures and everyday objects, incorporating floors, walls and ceilings and sometimes spilling out of exhibition sites. Critics suggest that her work is informed by diverse artistic traditions, including abstract expressionism, color field painting, minimalism and Pop art. Since her early career, they have noted in her work an openness to spontaneity, accident and marginality and a rejection of permanency, monetization and disciplinary conventions that Stephen Westfall characterized as an "almost shocking sense of freedom."

2. Pont Neuf de la Daurade

Show sight on map

The Daurade Bridge is an ancient bridge that spans the Garonne River and is located downstream of the Neuf Bridge in Toulouse. It connects the St. Cyprus suburb on the left bank of the river with the Abbey of Daoulad and the church of the same name on the right bank of the river. This is the second masonry bridge on the Garonne River in Toulouse after the aqueduct bridge built in Gallic-Roman times in the 1st century. It was built in the second half of the 12th century and was made of stone and brick, but frequent flooding led municipalities to gradually replace brick vaults with wooden aprons as they washed away. The bridge was covered in 1480, so it was named Covered Bridge.

Show sight on map

The Pont-Neuf spans the Garonne, and connects Place du Pont-Neuf to rue de la République in Toulouse. Despite its name, it is the oldest bridge in the still standing city that spans the Garonne, the others having been swept away by the floods of the river. The Tounis bridge is earlier but it was used to connect the old island of Tounis to the right bank. The Pont-Neuf formerly led to the entrance to the city, symbolized by a triumphal arch built by Jules Hardouin-Mansart. If the arc was destroyed in 1860, the bridge was still borrowed by vehicles and pedestrians.
