Hôtel de Ville
Du 6 juillet au 23 septembre

The new Town Hall was officially opened in 1958, on Bastille Day (July 14). This exhibition, put on by the Municipal Archives, lets the audience uncover its history through numerous models and copies of plans and architectural drawings. Designed by Auguste Perret in 1950, the original project has undergone many changes. The tower, designed by Jacques Tournant, gives the Town Hall its iconic appearance. Henri Colboc’s extension opened in 1987. The gardens were redesigned in the 1990s to be more accessible to the public, and then again in 2012, with the arrival of the tramway network. Since 2005, the Town Hall has been part of the Unesco site and it was classified as a historical monument in 2017, a further acknowledgement of its symbolic quality and importance.
