Architectural historian Barry Lewis takes us on a journey to Paris, where, in the 19th century, the French became pioneers of iron and glass construction—evolving from early century shopping galleries to the magnificent, mid-century iron-framed Saint Genevieve and National Libraries to the celebrated fin-de-siècle works: the Grand Palais and Eiffel Tower.
Barry Lewis is an architectural historian who specializes in European and American architecture from the 18th to 20th centuries.
