On February 2019, the Pavillon de l’Arsenal opened its Paris Recherche Program, which collects and features architectural, urban planning, landscape architecture, historical, heritage, and prospective research on Paris and the metropolis
to students and researchers at France’s national architecture schools, as well
as all of its universities and institutes of advanced study, the program
constitutes a digital living corpus of doctoral dissertations, and master’s and
undergraduate diploma theses.
Paris Recherche is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary tool that enables users to
search for and locate works in a shared digital space accessible to everyone from March 2019 on the online platform Kentika. Our
ambition is to highlight their authors and the issues they explore to create
the library of reference for architectural and urban research as it applies to
Paris and the metropolis as a whole. It is a public space for showcasing and
sharing know-how (to be distributed with the authors’ consent) that supplements
the Pavillon de l’Arsenal’s current activities through its website,
newsletters, publications, and exhibitions.
If you are a student or a researcher, we invite you to participate
in the creation of this metropolitan database by submitting your work using the
online form below.
