For the best part of a decade, Paris Magasins Généraux Pantin has played host to street artists from all over the French capital and beyond. Originally an embodiment of French industry, the building closed at the turn of the century, only to be reimagined as Graffiti Général, a five-floor monument to graffiti. The building is now scheduled for refurbishment in a story thatll sound familiar to anyone following the recent whitewashing of NYCs famous graffiti spot 5 Pointz. The buildings new tenant, advertising agency BETC, has created a to-scale 3D model of the building, and incorporated over 5,200 high-resolution photos of the art that covers it.
