Surveying examples of brick architecture in Paris from the late 19th century to the present, this catalogue provides photographs and descriptive commentaries documenting some 200 residences, commercial and public buildings, hospitals, churches and other structures illustrating the material's diverse applications. Introductory texts summarize the origins and early history of brick manufacture, discuss the widespread use of the material in Renaissance Paris, trace its decline in popularity during the reign of Louis XIV, and describe the process of brickmaking in 18th-century France. Numerous brief essays interspersed throughout the catalogue trace the dramatic revival of brick architecture in Paris during the late 1800s and evaluate its status in 20th-century architecture.
