Paris: Place, Time, and Architecture  

Paris, France is a city with layers and layers of architectural acclaim. When taking in this European capital, it is fascinating to understand and observe the centuries of cultural, political, and religious philosophies that have helped form the city that exists today. Paris has existed since the Romans conquered the territory in 52 BC. Through a spectrum of phases, fashions, and "improvements," the layout and buildings of today's Paris have culminated in a captivating smorgasbord of styles including French Baroque, Rococo, The Haussmann renovations, Art Nouveau, and contemporary architecture. In this talk, you'll enjoy stories and pictures of urban drama and gain insight into the back stories of constructing some of Paris' memorable structures as we dive into a history of the city's buildings that include planning strategies, creative visionaries, financial and political intrigue, and outside forces.
