Arsenale Architecture Centre, Paris
Pavillon de l’Arsenal’s new permanent exhibition is over 800m² dedicated to the metropolis of Paris as it was, is, and will be. “Paris, a city in the making” is the first event to ever bring together, in the same place and at the same time, all the latest in urban and metropolitan architecture.
Over 1,000 archived documents, photographs, maps, plans and films are on display, as well as a 37m2 digital model entitled “Paris, Metropolis 2020”, developed in partnership with Google and JCDecaux. The digital model is a world first, providing a 2D or 3D overview of key areas marked out for redevelopment, the new transport networks and the iconic architecture of the city of tomorrow in their geographical context using Google Earth technology and mapping software.
Open daily except Monday, there are also free guided tours of exposition 3pm every Saturday and 4:30pm every Sunday.
