ABOUT THIS TRAIL

A lot of avid learners, fans and connoisseurs of architecture come to big cities like Paris to admire architecture. This tour will give you exactly that fulfillment. Situated like in La Sapienza where an architect tries to rediscover his passion by going on a research expedition to the birthplace of 17th-century master Francesco Borromini. But, here the place is Paris, and the one who will discover or rediscover the passion will be you. Instead of Borromini you will discover the works of Mallet-Stevens and Le Corbusier. So, this means that we won’t look in the typical architecture of Paris like Gothic or Renaissance or even Art Nouveau but Modernism. There is a little known street where by just walking will make you feel like you are in a gallery of modernistic architecture – and this is where you will go with this tour.

       Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light. - Le Corbusier
