The architecture

Philharmonie

Vues extérieures Philharmonie

With the Philharmonie, Jean Nouvel offers innovative architecture which blends into the Parc de la Villette, on the edge of Paris and in the heart of a speedily evolving metropolis.

Cité de la musique

Inaugurated in 1995, the Cité de la musique building was conceived by the architect Christian de Portzamparc. He wanted it in the form of a “dreamlike town”, a space inviting movement, open to Greater Paris, a meeting place.
