Paris: Living Space

  • 1983 ----- color ----- 27 min ----- vhs
  • (Understanding Cities series, Part 2) Traces the history of Paris' design through the work of several individuals who shaped the city. They set in motion a self-perpetuating system of linked thoroughfares, boulevards and axes that transcended individual projects to form the city we know today. The work of many, known and unknown over the centuries, has created a vision with a life of its own--hence the title "Living Space," the element that gives Paris its unique character.
