FROM THE TRENTE GLORIEUSES UNTIL TODAY (1945-PRESENT)
World War II was followed by 30 years of rapid economic development in France. Huge building works were undertaken in Paris, mostly in the formerly industrialized outer arrondissements. Pompidou modernized the capital, and Mitterrand undertook Grands Projets reminiscent of Haussmann’s Grand Travaux.
About the Presenter: Russell Kelley, author of The Making of Paris, will give the seventh and last in the series of lectures accompanied by over 100 images, focusing on the structures that can still be seen today.
