    Description:

    [The Sacré-Coeur Basilica is a Roman Catholic basilica and popular landmark in Paris, France, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

    Description:

    Early in 1755 Soufflot was appointed to provide plans for Ste Geneviève, the new church promised by Louis XV to house the reliquary of the city’s patron saint. A collection of drawings (Paris, Bib. N.) and Claude Boulleau’s engraving of 1764 show the building in its ‘ideal’ state in that year. Built partly over a crypt, where, for the first time, Soufflot used the Doric order of Paestum, it owes its grandeur to his use of the same colossal Corinthian order both inside and out….

    Description:

    General view of the entrance to the fountain, on axis with the pond and fountain. Salomon de Brosse was the architect commissioned for the Palais du Luxembourg and gardens. The fountain may have been built by Thomas Francini under his direction. In 1811 Chalgrin did a Neoclassical restoration. The later iconography includes the figure of the jealous Cyclops (Polyphemus, above and in a niche), who waits to crush the lovers Acis and Galatea. The figures by Ottin were added in the relocation and…

    Description:

    There is now vehicular traffic through this area.

    Garnier had the idea of constructing the different parts of the building (the foyer, the auditorium and the fly) in distinct masses and decided to arrange them in tiers in such a way that the perspective varied in depth, gradually increasing the concentration on the façade. Garnier set out the low volume of the foyer in a very emphatic manner, as he did the auditorium and the immense gabled fly tower, which was of an impressive height: more t…
