Part of our fifth series of City Plates, this collection celebrates visionary thinking and takes a look at four great cities--Paris, Chicago, Montreal and Mumbai, examining the past, present, and future of innovative architecture and design.
Paris - Paris has hosted more World’s Fairs than any other city, the most architecturally memorable one occurring in 1889 and symbolized by the Eiffel Tower, which was built for the event. The Eiffel Tower and other landmarks including L’Arc de Triomphe, the Opera Bastille, and Les Halles are noted in persimmon on this plate. The plate is bisected by the Seine in blue with the Jardin de Tuileries and the Louvre marking the center of the plate.
The City Plates measure 12” across. Key buildings are represented with persimmon icons, while rivers and public spaces are shown in blue and green.
