Miejsca, którymi zachwyciłby się Wes Anderson
Współpracownicy Wesa Andersona rozpoczęli właśnie poszukiwania lokacji, w których mógłby zostać nakręcony jego kolejny film.
Tym razem będzie to musical, którego akcja ma się toczyć tuż po II wojnie światowej we Francji.
Prawdopodobnie planem zdjęciowym stanie się miasteczko Angoulême, choć póki co są to tylko pogłoski. Jeśli jednak możemy być czegoś pewni, to tego, że w nowym filmie nie zabraknie symetrycznych kadrów i pastelowych kolorów, z którymi kojarzony jest Wes Anderson.
________________________ Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel | Interlaken, Switzerland | c. 1869 • • The Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel & Spa is a five-star hotel in Interlaken, Switzerland with a history dating back to the mid 19th century and an unobstructed view of the Jungfrau massif – one of the main summits of the Bernese Alps • • In 1856, the entrepreneur Eduard Ruchti acquired the ‘Pension Victoria’, a former doctor's house on the mountain trail. He commissioned the architects Jakob Friedrich Studer and Horace Edouard Davinet to build a new building, and after nine-months of construction it was opened in 1865 • • Thirty years later, Ruchti aquired the neighboring structure that had been built in 1869 by Davinet Hotel Jungfrau, and a few years later connected both buildings by a central structure topped by a dome: this was how the Hotel Victoria-Jungfrau came to be • • In the years of the Belle Époque, Interlaken experienced a tourist boom with the construction of several mountain railways. The boom came to an abrupt end with the First World War, but despite the adverse circumstances, the hotel maintained its position in the luxury hotel industry • • During the Second World War, the Swiss Army used the hotel as a base of the general staff. Moving into the 1950s, changing comfort demands forced extensive renovations, including the addition of the luxe swimming pool. A further expansion took place in the 1970s with the construction of a tennis hall and the redesign of the garden • • Today the hotel has 224 rooms including 102 suites and junior suites. In 2000, it won the Hotel of the Year award, awarded by GaultMillau and IWC • • Know more?

Estetyka reżysera jest tak charakterystyczna, że fani założyli w zeszłym roku na Reddicie wątek „Accidental Wes Anderson” zbierający fotografie miejsc, które wyglądają, jakby mogły zagrać w kolejnym filmie twórcy „Grand Budapest Hotel”. Zainspirowany tym wątkiem nowojorczyk Wally Koval stworzył z kolei Instagrama, na którym gromadzi podobne zdjęcia.
Konto Accidentally Wes Anderson zbiera fotografie z całego świata, a ich autorzy sami zgłaszają się do Kovala – podobno każdego tygodnia o publikację swego zdjęcia na tym koncie ubiegają się tysiące osób.
Zgromadzone tam zdjęcia rzeczywiście robią wrażenie i zdecydowanie mogłyby zagrać u Andersona. Na miejscu reżysera kolejnego planu zdjęciowego poszukalibyśmy właśnie tam!

It is the home of the national collection of historically significant railway vehicles, as well as a collection of artifacts and records • • The museum displays a collection of over 100 locomotives and nearly 300 other items of rolling stock, virtually all of which either ran on the railways of Great Britain or were built there. Also on the 20 acre (8.1 ha) site are many hundreds of thousands of other items and records of social, technical, artistic and historical interest, exhibited mostly in three large halls of a former motive power depot near York railway station • • It is the largest museum of its type in Britain, attracting 727,000 visitors in 2014 and the largest in the world in terms of floor area of exhibition buildings is La Cité du Train in the French town of Mulhouse, although this attracts far fewer visitors than the National Railway Museum • • Although there had been amateur attempts to establish a national railway museum from the late 19th century, the National Collection today results from the fusion of two long-running official initiatives led by the State museums sector and the railway industry • • In 2001 the museum gained the European Museum of the Year Award. It has also won White Rose awards from the Yorkshire Tourist Board, and in recognition of the several major developments in 2004 was given the Heritage Railway Association's Peter Manisty Award • • Know more?

_________________________ Malibu Pier | Malibu, California | c. 1905 • • The Malibu Pier was originally built in 1905 to support the shipping operations of Frederick Hastings Rindge's Malibu Ranch. Hides, grains, fruit, and other agricultural products were transported from the ranch to the pier via private freight railroad and shipped from the pier along with other necessities • • In 1934, the pier was opened to the public mainly for the purpose of fishing, but after the bankruptcy of Marblehead Land Co. (the Rindge's land operation) in 1936, the pier was taken over by bondholders • • By the end of 1938, the pier was extended to its current 780-foot length, and the first small bait and tackle shop building was constructed at the ocean end • • During World War II, the end of the pier actually served as a U.S. Coast Guard daylight lookout station until an intense storm in the winter of 1943-1944 which destroyed the end of the pier • • The remains of the pier were sold to William Huber's Malibu Pier Company for $50,000 with the proviso that he would construct a building for the Coast Guard to re-occupy. After the end of the war, Huber expanded the pier and built the familiar twin buildings at the end for a bait and tackle shop plus a restaurant • • Sports fishing boats operated from the Pier until the early 1960s and the building near the land end – intended for the Coast Guard – became a restaurant in 1966 until the closure of the pier in the 1990s • • In 1980 the State of California bought the pier and it continued to operate under the State Department of Parks and Recreation • • Today the Malibu Pier is a Southern California icon in an area once called the Riviera of America and is in the heart of California's surf culture.

_________________________ Busselton Jetty | Busselton, Western Australia | c. 1853 • • Busselton Jetty is the longest wooden jetty (pier) in the world, stretching almost 2 km out to sea from the town of Busselton, Western Australia. Because the shallow waters of Geographe Bay restricted ship movement, a long jetty was required so that cut timber could be transported to ships • • Construction commenced in 1853 with the first section opening in 1865. The jetty was extended numerous times until the 1960s, ultimately reaching a length of 1841 meters • • On October 17, 1971 the last commercial ship visited the jetty, and the following year, it was permanently closed to shipping by Governor's Proclamation in the Western Australian Government Gazette after more than a century of use. Once closed, government maintenance of the jetty ceased and it began to deteriorate, suffering attack by wood borers, rot and the occasional fire • • When Cyclone Alby swept down the Western Australian coast and destroyed a large part of the shore end of the jetty, townspeople banded together to try to save the structure and eventually persuaded the State Government and the Shire Council to provide some much needed funds for repair • • The structure also features a rail line along its length, a relic of the railway line into Busselton from Bunbury. The line now carries tourists along the jetty to an underwater observatory which opened to the public in 2003 • • In 2011 a $27 million refurbishment of the jetty structure was completed. $24 million was contributed by the Western Australian State Government with the balance contributed by the Shire of Busselton and BJECA. • • Know more?

________________________ Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark | Berlin, Germany | c. 1952 • • Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark is a sports stadium in the Prenzlauer Berg district of Berlin, Germany. It is the second largest sports complex in the city with approximately 20,000 seats • • Since 1825, the area was used as the drill grounds of the Guard Regiment of the Prussian army. While some housing was constructed on the site late in the 19th century, it was a short-lived use and the area soon became an open space used specifically for sports. The city of Berlin purchased the land in 1912 and developed it in 1913 • • After World War II and the division of the capital city, the area was part of what became East Berlin, in the Soviet zone of occupation. A football and athletics stadium, with a capacity of 30,000 spectators, was built on the site in 1951, for use during the World Youth Festival that year • • Known initially as Berliner Sportpark, municipal officials renamed the facility the Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark the following year, to honor the man known in Germany as the father of gymnastics. The stadium was refurbished in 1988 and its capacity reduced to the present-day number • • From 1963 to 1989, the facility hosted the Olympic Day of Athletics competition, modeled on a similar event staged each year in West Berlin. Over the years, it has also been utilized for many other major events, including international soccer matches, NFL Europe matches, even serving as a concert venue for performers such as Michael Jackson • • With the current stadium in a state of decay, the German media reported in February 2017 that the senate is planning to invest €170 million in the redevelopment of the area, including €85 million for a new stadium, and that the current stadium will be demolished by 2020 • • Know more?

________________________ Warrender Baths | Edinburgh, Scotland | c. 1887 • • Warrender Swim Centre – traditionally known as Warrender Baths – is a swimming pool and fitness complex in Marchmont, Edinburgh, Scotland. It is notable for its Victorian architecture with bright interior and its old-fashioned poolside changing facilities • • In 1886, Edinburgh residents and members of the Bellahouston Private Baths Club in Glasgow, decided to build a swimming club in Edinburgh. Frank Y. Henderson formed the Warrender Private Baths Club Limited which purchased land from Sir George Warrender, 6th Baronet, and, using the local architect Robert Paterson, built the Baths for an original cost of £11,000 • • The baths were opened in December 1887 and differed from many similar facilities in Edinburgh in that they were originally built privately with the emphasis on fitness and leisure. Many of the city's comparable swimming pools were part of a much wider plans to promote cleanliness and hygiene amongst the working classes, who did not have routine access at the time to sanitation • • Initially the facilities were a success, but by 1906 were no longer viable and closed. The baths were purchased by the city for £3000, where they joined the city's portfolio of similar pools. Periodically suffering further closure threats, they were refurbished in 2005 • • The baths are home to the Warrender Baths Club which is said to be the oldest, most famous and most successful swimming club in Scotland. Numerous Olympic medalists have swam and trained with this club, including David Wilkie, Ellen King and Keri-Anne Payne • • Know more?

________________________ Autobahnüberbauung Schlangenbader Strasse | Berlin, Germany | c. 1981 • • Autobahnüberbauung Schlangenbader Strasse is a housing project located in Berlin, Germany designed by architect Georg Heinrichs which was actually built over top of the existing Autobahn speedway • • In the early 1970’s, the Berlin wall created a limited means of expansion of the city of West Berlin, so the city decided to experiment with ideas that had never previously been built. They invested into creating a housing scheme over the newly opened A100 Autobahn • • Completed in 1981, the project was built using two separate structural systems. One system to hold the autobahn, and the other for the apartments themselves to help eliminate unwanted vibrations or sounds intruding into the living unit • • At 600 meters long and 46 meters high, the project itself is also one of the largest single residential complexes in all of Europe. It contains 1064 total apartments including single studio, multi-room and senior citizen living accommodation • • Although the building has won awards, including the Renault Traffic Design Award for Advanced Transportation Architecture, it was controversial in nature • • Also known as ‘Schlange’ (‘Snake’), the project was not finished on time, and ran over the projected budget. Berlin’s then-mayor Richard von Weizsäcker famously said, “If the Devil wants to put a curse on Berlin, let him wish us another ‘Schlange’.” • • Know more?

________________________ 's Lands Zeemagazijn | Amsterdam, Netherlands | c. 1656 • • s Lands Zeemagazijn (the Arsenal) is a historic building dating from 1656. Surrounded by water on two sides, it was designed by Daniel Stalpaert as a storehouse for the Admiralty of Amsterdam. The Arsenal was built in the Golden Age, when Amsterdam was the largest port and market place in the world • • At the time it opened, the storehouse held cannons, sails, flags and sailing equipment stored for the war fleet. The vaulted cellars under the inner courtyard were used to store rainwater – some 40,000 liters – to provide drinking water for the ships • • In 1791, the inside of the building was gutted by fire, leaving only the stone shell of the outer walls. The charred brickwork was covered with a layer of plaster leaving the appearance of stately blocks of sandstone • • When Napoleon entered the country and found the Batavian Republic in 1795, the five Admiralties were abolished and replaced by a national navy. The Arsenal became and remained a storehouse for the navy until the early 1970s • • In 1972, the Arsenal began a new life as a 'storehouse' for the best pieces of The National Maritime Museum's collection. The museum became a national museum, which considerably expanded its options for financial support. The museum was officially opened by Princess Beatrix on April 13, 1973 • • Know more?
