Exceptional spaces in the heart of Paris

When La Cité de l'Architecture opens its doors to you...

Occupying a surface area of 23,000 m² in the Paris Wing of Palais de Chaillot, La Cité de l'Architecture & du Patrimoine was inaugurated in 2007 as a reference institution in architecture, urbanism and landscaping. La Cité works to foster public interest in these fields and delves into them with the help of specialists and professionals.

Home to exhibitions, education and reflection, La Cité de l’Architecture is a thriving cultural institution, whose mission is to preserve an exceptional heritage (the museum’s collections cover 1,000 years of French architecture history) but also to look to the future and attest to changes in architecture and urban landscape.


La Cité de l’Architecture & du Patrimoine offers a variety of spaces for receptions: permanent and temporary exhibition galleries, reception halls and lounges, meeting rooms and a library.
This is an exceptional setting for all kinds of corporate events: meetings, conferences, product launches, presentations for the press, PR operations, cocktails and gala dinners. These private events can be associated with a tour of the permanent and temporary exhibitions designed for the general public and for professionals in architecture, urbanism, landscaping and design.

Film shoots

All of these spaces are also potential settings for film shoots. The terrace of the Salon d’About provides affords one of the loveliest views of Paris and the Eiffel Tower.

La Cité de l’Architecture can accommodate all types of shoots: photo shoots, TV or cinema productions, advertising, interviews, video clips.
