Architecture and comics: an exhibition that you should not miss17.10.2010

"ARCHI & BD" is the original and new exhibition organized by the City of Architecture and Heritage until 28 November, which suggests two worlds seeming opposites, where visionary drawers, as well as architects, designed the city differently.

Early in the twentieth century with authors such as Winsor McCay (Little Nemo), George McManus (The Illico family), Frank O. King (Gasoline Alley) and Alain Saint-Ogan (Zig and Puce), the comics explore the city, fascinated by the emerging world it symbolizes.

This theme, not only of the city, but elements immediately associated as architecture, urbanism, design, history or politics, has become the ideal ground for aesthetic descriptions and reflections on the contemporary world with authors like Francois Schuiten Benoît Peeters, Enki Bilal, Moebius ...

The exhibition will discuss, without commitment of completeness, the representations of the city in the comics of the 1900s until today. 350 works will be presented in the form of plates, illustrations, movies ... from 150 authors and drawers.

The City of Architecture & Heritage is located at 1 Place du Trocadero in Paris. You have a Les Cars Rouges pass? So it's easy: get off at stop Trocadero on Les Cars Rouges' circuit then you just have to walk two minutes! Here is a map.
