Auguste Perret: Huit Chefs d’oeuvre !/?


Auguste Perret : Huit Chefs d’oeuvre !/? (“Auguste Perret: Eight Masterpieces!/?”) takes place in the pillared hypostyle room of the Palais d’Iéna, one of Perret's most significant projects. This exhibition is an invite to explore the wealth of the significance of reinforced concrete architecture today and more generally seeks to question its modern heritage.

The exhibition focus on eight buildings from among Auguste Perret's many projects: in Paris, immeuble de la Rue Franklin (1903), Théâtre des Champs-Elysées (1913), église Notre Dame du Raincy (1923), salle Cortot (1928), Mobilier national (1934) and Palais d’Iéna (1937); and in Le Havre, Hôtel de Ville (1950) and église Saint Joseph (1951). With their technical inventiveness and unique relationship with their materials, these eight buildings represent a decisive addition to 20th-century architecture.

A cultural program run during the twelve weeks of the exhibition: the Palais opened its doors to the public and host every week talks, debates, workshops, performances, concerts and screenings in the hemicycle.
