Versailles. Dreams of architecture. 1660-1815 - Exhibition catalogue
An ongoing worksite: Versailles, the subject of multiple projects.
Some were completed and gave the palace its appearance as we know it today, but many projects never came to fruition. From Hardouin-Mansart's "Grand Design" and Gabriel's "Grand Project" to later propositions by Percier and Fontaine under the Empire, this work reveals three centuries of architectural dreams at Versailles: a palace as we have never seen it but presented as it could have been.
Exhibition at the château de Versailles from 4 May to 4 August 2019
