Hosted by the Louisiana Chapter | 1.5 AIA CES Learning Units|Elective
Please join the ICAA Louisiana Chapter for a book lecture by Mary Campbell Gallagher as she discusses her new book, Paris Without Skyscrapers. Gallagher will discuss the ICPP's mission to promoting traditional architecture and urbanism in Paris.
The world loves Paris for its beauty, and most people think that it will always be beautiful. But the city’s leaders are about to destroy its beauty. Although in 2007, they took a poll and 63 percent of residents wanted “no tall buildings,” in 2008, they started building skyscrapers anyway. Re-elected in 2020 by a mere 18 percent of eligible voters, their mandate is fragile. But they plan to make Paris more "modern."
Paris does not belong to France alone, still less to its ambitious politicians. Paris belongs to the world. We believe that the world simply does not know what the politicians are up to. In the book Paris Without Skyscrapers/Paris sans gratte-ciel, to be published in both English and French, 49 experts in fields from architecture to economics to politics tell why "modernizing" Paris is a mistake.
A graduate of Harvard Law School with a Ph.D. in linguistic theory, Mary Campbell Gallagher is founder and president of the International Coalition for the Preservation of Paris, ICPP. She has published and spoken widely on new building projects in Paris. She is editor of the forthcoming book Paris Without Skyscrapers, to be published in French as Paris sans gratte-ciel. ICPP's mission is to promote the traditional architecture and urbanism of Paris.
This event is hosted by an ICAA Chapter. Please check the Chapter website or contact the Chapter directly, for the most up-to-date details including dates, times, and pricing.
