Urban patterns persist, sometimes through centuries, and bind future generations. Witness the Louvre-Tuileries palace. From the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries, from FranÃ§ois I to FranÃ§ois Mitterrand, successive regimes could not resist laying hands on the buildings, which became the largest palace in the world. No other structure in Paris has so successfully survived so many royal (or imperial) masters and their architects. Haussmannâs work on Paris, I here argue, is similar. He ï¬xed the shape, the itineraries, the architecture, and in part the culture of Paris in ways that have shown surprising vitality for more than a century. His successors have added onto his work without obliterating it. Even those who loathe Haussmannâs urban ideas and inï¬uence have found themselves enmeshed in his net.
