Program

People coming to Paris are often eager to know the capital, through what connects architecture and urbanism. The overall idea of this cycle is to offer a panoramic view of Paris through five major historical periods of its development:

  • From the origins of Parisii to the birth of the ancient city
    • Nathalie Ginoux, History of art and archeology, Faculty of Arts & Humanities Sorbonne Université
  • Medieval Paris
    • Rose-Marie Ferré, History of art and archeology, Faculty of Arts & Humanities Sorbonne Université
  • The Haussmannian Paris
    • Jean-Baptiste Minnaert, History of art and archeology, Faculty of Arts & Humanities Sorbonne Université
  • Paris in the 20th century
    • Jean-Baptiste Minnaert, History of art and archeology, Faculty of Arts & Humanities Sorbonne Université
  • Paris of today and tomorrow. From urban consumption areas to knowledge spaces.
    • Patrizia Ingalina, Geography, Faculty of Arts & Humanities Sorbonne Université

The history of the urban fabric and major breakthroughs at different times; the creation of perspectives and facades with the boulevards; covered passages; gardens and public places; mansions and workers' towns; stations and museums, the belly of Paris (from the Halles to the sewers), the car traffic and the human flows.

Pedagogically, the general idea is to propose a mix of lectures (3h in the morning) and visits (3h walk in the afternoon) to understand the history of the Paris aspect, from its vestiges to the most recent constructions by renowned specialists professing at the University Paris-Sorbonne.
