The event will start with a guided walking tour of Boulogne-Billancourt’s 1930s buildings.  We will stroll through the “Parcours des Années 30” stretching from centre to the north edge of the city, amid public and residential buildings and artist studios built by Le Corbusier, Courrèges, Mallet-Stevens ou Terry. The tour will end at the Musée des Années Trente in Boulogne-Billancourt, which we will visit without a guide.

This municipal museum is a hidden gem, especially for lovers of Art Deco.  Created to celebrate both the arts and industry during a period in which noted performers, architects, painters, sculptors, and film makers were attracted to the town, it houses collections of paintings, sculptures, drawings, furniture, ceramics, another objects.  It includes “orientalist” works, from France’s overseas colonies at the time. 

Set aside time to join participants for lunch at a local café.
