ARTstor Digital Library and ART on FILE have collaborated to share nearly 1,500 digital photographs of architecture, built environment projects, and landscape architecture in Paris and its suburbs.

In their most recent ARTstor-sponsored campaign, photographers Colleen Chartier and Rob Wilkinson photographed such significant sites as Musée de Branly (Jean Nouvel); Le Monde headquarters (Christian de Portzamparc); City de la Musique (Christian de Portzamparc); Bibliotech Nationale de France (Dominique Perrault); Palace Fouquet’s Barriere (Edouard Francois); Passeralle Simon de Deauvoir (Feichtinger Architectes); Le Jardin Atlantique (Francois Brun & Michel Pena); Cite de la Mode et du Design (Jakob + MacFarlane); Institute du Monde Arabe (Jean Nouvel, Gilbert Lézénès, Pierre Soria); ZAC porte d’Asinieres (Lead architect: Portzamparc with Brenac & Gonzalez); Jardin Serge Gainsbourg (M. Gelin and D. Lafon); Les Jardins d’Eole Parc de la Cour du Maroc (Michel Crajoud and Claire Corajoud, Paysagistes, with ADR and Georges Descombes, architects); Grand Palais restoration (Agence Alain-Charles Perrot/Jean-Loup Roubert Architecture); and George’s Restaurant, Centre Pompidou (Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers, restaurant, Jakob+Macfarlane); and many more.

These new photographs join the approximately 13,000 images by ART on FILE already in the Digital Library. Chartier and Wilkinson have contributed selections from ART on FILE’s extensive archive of slides and transparencies, which documents contemporary architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and public art around the world. ARTstor has also sponsored previous campaigns for ART on FILE to create new digital photographs of contemporary architecture in the United States, Europe, United Arab Emirates, and Shanghai.
