At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

A reinvented space.

The Arc de triomphe is undoubtedly one of the star monuments on the Parisian landscape, principally appreciated by its many visitors (about 1.3 million per year), for the wonderful views it affords over the Champs Elysees and the west of Paris. However, the Arc de Triomphe merits more attention than as a mere vantage point, though the views are breathtaking.

The design of the large room inside the arch, dating mainly from the late 1930s, was somewhat dated and failed to adequately present the symbolic richness of the site to a public made up of more than 80% foreigners. Therefore, the National Monuments Centre following consultations, entrusted the design and realisation of new features to the artist Maurice Benayoun and the architect Christophe Giraultthe, their mission being to showcase the history of monument to advantage.

Thanks to an evolving and fun multimedia concept, visitors will now be able to fully appreciate the monument's history and architecture. Not to mention enjoy to the utmost the enviable panorama with the new "augmented reality" telescope, videos, plasma screens, and interactive systems that successfully translate through geometry and image these reinvented spaces.

Set designers: Maurice Benayoun and Christophe Girault
