Notre-Dame du Travail... - Secret World

36 Rue Guilleminot, 75014 Paris, Francia

by Lara Kipling


This church, built in 1902, is remarkable for its use of a visible iron frame. It gives the church an industrial atmosphere, which is no coincidence: the church was built for the construction workers who helped build the Eiffel Tower and other structures for the 1889 World Exhibition. The metal columns were even taken from the Palais de l'Industrie, an exhibition hall that was demolished in 1897.
