"I've been working for a patrimony architecture agency for 5 years, but during my college years, I specialised in history and theories of architecture, urbanism or plastic arts. And I love talking about it ! Very few people are interested in the matter because it is said to be technical or sharp, whereas it is not. And this is what I want to share.

My tours are based on my own experience as an architect. I dealt with several building works, and was assigned with renovating several Haussman style flats. Through my tours, I want to show Paris as a moving city. Haussman works definetely transformed Paris, one can not talk about the city without mentioning them. But beside these recent changes, the city still bears features of Middle Age times.
