Palais de Chaillot : The symbol of Art Deco Latest blog

The Trocadero site of the Palais de Chaillot is an area of Paris in the 16th arrondissement across the Seine  from the Eiffel Tower.
For the Exposition Internationale of 1937, the old Palais du Trocadéro was demolished and replaced by the Palais de Chaillot which now tops the hill. Three architects, Jacques Carlu, Louis-Hippolyte Boileau and Léon Azéma have used many artists to dress the building. At least forty sculptors have occurred outside: we owe them the monumental bas-reliefs of different facades and statues of the esplanade and gardens. Twenty painters have taken over the decoration of the interior of the palace. The meeting of top talents of architects, sculptors, glassmakers, decorators and designers, who were able to infuse a single mind at a time, were behind the success of Art Deco movement.
 Palais de Chaillot hosts two world class museums, the Maritime museum which contains great ship models spanning three centuries, and Paris Aquarium which is located in Palais de Chaillot Gardens.
Architecture lovers will enjoy the Architecture Museum (Cité de l'architecture) devoted to the monuments of France. With no doubt Palais de Chaillot is a symbol of Art Deco in Paris and all over France.
