Alliance Française is excited to welcome Stéphanie Celle for a lecture about the grand châteaux in Ile-de-France on May 4, 2012 at 7 pm. These prestigious “châteaux de plaisance” in Ile-de-France were originally built in a close relation to landscape, enjoying the proximity of the Seine River and of a forest. Two centuries later, the surroundings have become suburban. To exist, these châteaux must fit in the missing piece of the Greater Paris puzzle.

This conference will be presented by Stéphanie Celle, French State Architect and Urbanist Conservator of National Monuments, along with the participation of Laurence Sabatié-Garat, Head of Institutional and International Relations Centre des Monuments Nationaux. This event is also made possible by the support of the Délégation Générale of the Alliance Française in the United States. The lecture is $15 for AF members and $25 for non-members.
