Île de la Cité Mission


Dominique Perrault is a contemporary architect and urbanist known all around world for his realisations. Dominique Perrault and his architecture office have been missionedd by President François Hollande, in partnership with Phillippe Bélabal (president of the Historical Monuments Center) to imagine the future of “l’Île de la Cité” by 2040 in Paris.
