FROM GREAT HOTELS TO PARISIAN PALACELS, AN ARCHITECTURAL AND URBAN INVENTION ?

Lecture Thursday 7 November 2019 at 7 PM With Joanna Vajda,
architect and history doctor 

As part of the exhibition Hôtel Métropole.

Since 1855, the year of the first Universal Exhibition held in Paris, international tourism has contributed to France's influence. The construction of large luxury hotels, a new architectural program, generates a transformation of urban space and uses and gives rise to many innovations. Understanding how hotel space is built helps to understand the logics at work and the influence that these logics still have on the Parisian hotel industry today.
