  • "Is Paris in Peril?" Panel Discussion

  • Apr 26, 2010 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm
  • Location: The National Arts Club
  • Description: Is Paris in Peril?We’ll always have Paris. Or will we? The Architectural Committee and Le Cocktail Français of the National Arts Club explore the architectural past and future of Paris, the world’s most-visited capital and, along with Rome and Washington, DC, one of the last remaining low-rise cities. Much as construction of the Eiffel Tower evoked raucous protests in 1889, today President Nicolas Sarkozy’s mammoth, multi-faceted, project called Grand Paris arouses protests, on numerous grounds. Lovers of the Paris skyline object to his plans to build high-rise towers. The Mayor and City Council of Paris, meanwhile, have approved plans for towers at six sites in Paris: the first, Project Triangle, will rise 50 stories behind the Eiffel Tower, looming over the city's six and eight-story buildings. Our panel will examine the history of changes to the architectural landscape of Paris and comment on current proposals. Speakers include architectural historian and arts critic Francis Morrone
