Overview

A beautiful book that takes the form of an architectural stroll through Paris and its inner suburbs with architect and historian Jean-Louis Cohen, and psychologist and sociologist Monique Eleb. The authors' descriptions of public and residential buildings dating from 1900 to the present day are remarkably perceptive. Each building featured has been chosen for the contribution it makes to the current cityscape and the role it has played in the evolution of Paris.

The tour starts at Hector Guimard's Castel Beranger apartment block of 1898 and the Church of St. Jean de Montmartre, which is an early example of reinforced concrete construction. Also features the Salvation Army Hostel by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, Renzo Piano's Rue de Meaux housing development of 1993, and Pierre Charreau's Maison de Verre.
