No, Pixar is not promoting a sequel to Up, set in Paris (sadly), this is the work of French photographer & artist Laurent Chehere. Inspired by the architecture of the 19th and 20th arrondissements of Paris– mainly Belleville and Menilmontant, Laurent isolates his urban houses from the hustle and bustle of the diverse Parisian neighborhoods using conceptual and surreal photo manipulation. The result is an unexpected appreciation for the beauty in ordinary urban architecture that most of us would otherwise never notice.

Not to be confused with Floating Houses

This floating home is not actually a manipulated photograph, this is an actual house in the Loire river in France as part of an art installation by Jean-Luc Courcoult. The house is still ‘floating’ next to the city if Nantes installation in the city of Nantes.
