Until the 12th of February, the “Cité de l’Architecture“, inside the Palais de Chaillot at the Trocadero square, introduces an unusual but thrilling exhibition called “ L’Hôtel particulier, une ambition parisienne” (“The Townhouse, a Parisian ambition”) that takes you through an interactive path. Go inside, and you’ll discover how the Hotel Particulier, which is a constituent element of the architectural personality of Paris, evolved throughout the centuries, and inside the different neighbourhoods of Paris. You’ll find a reconstruction in 3D of a small hotel between yard and garden, a chronological path, thematic readings such as the link that exists between the hotels and the cities, but also touch screens that allow you to visualize hotels maps and their organization… More than just a simple tour, this exhibition offers you a real immersion, as well as a new angle to recount the history of Paris. Nearby, the Saint James Paris recommends you more particularly to go to this very unusual and very Parisian exhibition. From the sophisticated atmosphere of the only chateau-hotel in Paris, you’ll progressively move, within a few minutes, to the hushed feeling of a “hôtel particulier”. Unique in Paris!
