European Heritage Days 2019 at the Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine

The Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine expects you on Saturday September 21 and Sunday 22, 2019 for free guided tours as part of European Heritage Days.

For European Heritage Days 2019, the Cité de l’Architecture has concocted us a playful visit leading us through the aisles of this museum devoted to the architectural heritage in the Cité Chaillot.

Since 2007, the Cité de l’Architecture highlights a wonderful collection of models, fortified city maps, pieces of forgotten buildings, stained-glass windows and the monument itself, vestige of the Musée de Sculpture Comparée open in 1882.

Among the major pieces of the collection, we have the painted ceiling of the cupola from the Cathédrale de Cahors (14th century), a model of Notre-Dame de Paris, as well as the recreation to scale 1 of one of the dwelling unit from the Cité Radieuse built by Le Corbusier in Marseilles in 1952 and the model of the Gare du Nord.

On the menu of European Heritage Days at the Cité de l’Architecture:

  • Flash tour of the Mobilier d’architectes exhibition, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
    Many intermediaries will be available in the collections to tell us about the story of the pieces of architect furniture set until December 31, 2019.

  • Flash tour of the permanent collections, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
    Many intermediaries will be available in the collections to tell us about the mural painting gallery, the Notre-Dame de Paris model and the “Espace émouvant. Henri Ciriani”.

  • Guided tour of the Voûte de Saint-Savin-sur-Gartempe, Saturday and Sunday at 11 a.m.

  • Construction workshop with children from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

So, are you ready to discover France’s architectural heritage?
