World Architecture Community has released the third episode of the first documentary of its Life & Architecture series, which was announced on April 23, 2020. 

WAC's third episode, titled Big Projects Paris - Part 3, is the extension of the Big Projects Paris - Part 2 which was released on May 8, 2020. 

WAC has launched Life & Architecture documentary series give a detailed and in-depth look at many key buildings of contemporary architecture. The exclusive documentaries, captured from the 1990s,  present an outstanding virtual journey throughout the buildings. 

Each documentary or episode features the buildings' distinctive features and the design stories of such important commissions narrated with exclusive interviews with architects, commissioners of the projects and project leaders. 

As the documentaries had been recorded for a Turkish television in 1990s, all the videos are presented in Turkish language but featuring English subtitles. However, the series are not outdated, on the contrary, these documentaries have a very high archive value to recapture the essence of the buildings. 

The third and last section of "Big Projects Paris" shows the Institute de Monde Arabe by Jean Nouvel, Architecture-Studio, Pierre Soria and Gilbert Lezenes, the Natural History Museum by architect Edmé Verniquet and the Parc de la Villette and Science Museum by Bernard Tschumi
