Examines the urbanization of Paris's perimeter as defined by a massive network of fortifications erected around the city in the 1840s, presenting architectural drawings, urban-planning designs, maps, and documentary prints and photographs that illuminate the topographic and social transformations of the region. The extensive ten-part text describes the primary phases in the evolution of the perimeter zone from the mid-1800s to the present, discussing such topics as the conversion of the fortifications into parklands in the early 20th century, the proliferation of housing complexes in the area during the 1920s and 30s, and the construction of a major beltway system in the postwar era.
