Paris Reborn

Architect Stephane Kirkland joins us this Wednesday at our Colfax Avenue Theater of Ideas to talk about Paris Reborn, his engrossing account of 19th Century Paris, when the government launched a huge campaign to build streets, squares, parks, churches, and public buildings—a large part of what we see when we visit Paris today.

  1. Colfax, Tattered Cover, and Haussmann's Paris -- three of my favorite subjects. Thanks for the heads-up.
