Cité De L’architecture Et Du Patrimoine

On October 29th 1879, one year after the initial report by Viollet-le-Duc revolving around the creation of a vast permanent exhibition of casts of French medieval sculpture masterpieces, Jules Ferry, then minister of public education, solemnly committed the government to the creation of “a tribute to French art

The Cite wishes to transform these different levels of awareness into a dynamic strength. The struggle of the Cite is that of architectural and environmental quality. It feeds on the debates and the diversity of opinions that must be expressed within the Cite through the diversity of its programming.
• between Paris, regions and abroad. By presenting masterpieces belonging to the regional patrimony at the heart of Paris, the museum has, from the outset, refused to be merely a prestigious institution of the capital. By producing exhibitions whose purpose is to travel, by being a place of convergence for others, by positiong itself with determinism on the international front, the Cite strives to become a reference pole within a network of players and partners.

The Auditorium proposes, several times per year, in counterpoint of the exhibitions organized by the Cité, audio-visual programmes. This initiative also fits in a broader strategy: to open architecture to other cultural fields.
