Paris is a city where a steel and glass pyramid juxtaposes the former library of King Charles V, and home to great architectural projects, from the Grande Arche de la Défense to the Bibliothèque François-Mitterrand. “Starchitecture” projects abound in current-day Paris, designed by the likes of Jean Nouvel, Franck O. Gehry, Renzo Piano and Christian de Portzamparc, and the designer touch has become indispensable for any hotel renovation. Paris has also launched trend-setting initiatives such as Paris Plages, the Nuit Blanche and the Nuits des Musées, which have since been copied by other cities around the world.
