A maison de l’Allemagne had to wait until the fifties to be realised. Johannes Krahn, the designer of several public facilities and religious monuments, designed one of the most modern structures of his time by combining concrete, steel and glass.
In 2000, the garden acquired a bronze bust of Octave Simon in memory of Guillaume Fichet (1433-1480), the designer of the first French print, which was made in 1470 at the Sorbonne, 20 years after Gutenberg’s invention.
Thanks to its 43 houses, the Cité internationale offers a rich cultural and artistic program to all audiences : concerts, screenings, conferences, exhibitions, shows…
