In 1937 the City of Paris organised the World Exhibition of “Arts et Techniques appliqués à la vie moderne” (“Exhibition of Arts and Techniques applied on modern life”). For this occasion, several detached houses were built both to welcome visitors and promote the French savoir-faire.
Even though the majority of these houses were ephemeral others were aimed to be permanents. That’s especially the case of the Tokyo Palace which represents the story of the French Art.
Nowadays, this Art Deco Palace shelter the art modern museum of the City of Paris and the Centre d’Art Contemporain (“the Contemporary art centre”) with it. In this cultural place often, temporary exhibitions and events are organised.
For your next journey in Paris, we recommend you to put your luggage down a Helzear suite or flat, a hotel nigh the Tokyo Palace, as pleasant to discover or rediscover contemporary works.
