Pavillion de l’arsenal – Discovering Paris

Would you like to see how Paris was created, from the small city of the Middle Ages up to today? What were the town plans during each century or decade? The Pavillon de l’Arsenal offers all that. From the beginnings of the city up to today, the walls are full of maps, pictures, drawings and photos of the city. 

The walls are not only covered with information about the construction of Paris, they also speak about the suburbs, explaining how the government decided to promote building and renting out in the suburbs at moderate rates or the emergence of the suburban areas themselves. Their talks about cities take the sociological perspective into account, so being able to mix that together with architectural and urbanism ones is very interesting. 

Check their website: from exhibitions to talks, they have a very attractive agenda!
