Victor Louis, architect. From Rome to Bordeaux
21 September - 23 December
This is the digital version of the exhibition "Victor Louis, architect. From Rome to Bordeaux", organised by the Aquitaine Region's Heritage and Inventory Department.
Architect at the origin of several remarkable Bordeaux buildings, including the Grand Théâtre, Victor Louis is honoured in a free exhibition at the Espace Patrimoine et Inventaire de Nouvelle-Aquitaine.
He was behind the construction of the Grand-Théâtre in 1780, but also of the famous Maison Gobineau, a triangular building located at the end of the present allées de Tourny. Victor Louis is one of the major names in the architectural revival of Bordeaux in the 18th century.
Free of charge, the exhibition is open from Monday to Friday between 9am and 6pm, until at least the end of 2020 (date to be confirmed). Through reproductions of plans, portraits and a video presentation, the exhibition shows the career of this Parisian architect, who travelled through Rome and Warsaw and contributed to the beautification of Bordeaux during the reign of Louis XVI.
