This program thoroughly maps out the transformation of Paris during the 19th century from a stifling, congested city of narrow and winding streets to an aesthetically pleasing model of Industrial Age modernity. David Jordan, author of Transforming Paris, and experts from institutions including the Ecole d'Architecture de Paris-Conflans and the Centre Nationale de Recherche Scientifique discuss key construction projects such as the Rue de Rivoli, the Parisian railroad system, the Bois de Boulogne and the Bois de Vincennes, the Paris aqueducts and sewers, and the Eiffel Tower, all within the context of French history.
