During this architectural walk in the 16th arrondissement, we will discover the most emblematic buildings of Hector Guimard, who is the founder of the Art Nouveau movement. Born in 1870, this creative and innovative architect became quickly the figurehead of the Art Nouveau style in France, especially famous for conceiving the original Parisian “metropolitain” entrances and his buildings for most of them located in the 16th district of Paris.
Come and discover with our guide Thomas, the masterpieces of Guimard. He built private mansions like his own (Hôtel Guimard) and conceived artist studios (the Atelier Carpeaux) or apartment buildings (the Castel Béranger). This discovery of the Guimard style will allow us to understand the fundamental principles defining the Art Nouveau such as the use of industrial materials, the emphasizing of the ironwork and the research of new decorative patterns.
