The collection in the Modern and Contemporary Architecture Gallery, which was put together for the opening of La Cité d’Architecture, stands out by its diversity and wealth: full-size element converse with models, drawings, historic films and photographs to provide a look at architecture and the city from the perspective as much of the built environment as of daily experience. With the 20th-Century Architecture Archives Centre, this collection represents one of the most important historical resources dedicated to French production in the modern period.
