Dennis Stock’s 1997 photograph, taken at Porte de la Villette, presents a contemporary icon of the city in contrast to more traditional Paris symbols such as the Eiffel Tower. The photograph shows a Geodesic dome, part of La Villette’s celebration of contemporary architecture. The mirror-finished dome reflects the sky and houses an IMAX cinema, making the building a fitting icon of the age of screens.
