Paris - 2000 years of architecture and urban history

Using Paris as an out-door class-room is an extraordinary experience! Beside specific information upon the Parisian architecture and urban factory I try to initiate students to observe their built environment: how and why did todays buildings and urban compositions turn out this way? Not only monuments, but also functional and ordinary structures are essential in the urban factor.

This page will hopefully evolve with time - in a first stage I suggest a brief bibliography (architecture & urbanism in general) and as an introduction to Paris architecture and urbanism a chronological list with a selection of web-links:

Bruno Zevi "Apprendre à voir l'architecture"
S.E. Rasmussen "Experiencing architecture"
Fredrik F. Wulz "Fasaden och stadsrummet".
