  Paris Without Skyscrapers: The battle to save the beauty of the City of Light
class="BAEventText">The world loves Paris because it is beautiful. Its buildings have had legal height limits for hundreds of years, which help maintain the city's enchanting skyline. But today political pressure is gutting the law. The beauty of Paris is under threat. Residents feel powerless. And the world does not know. This book, in both English and French, featuring 49 authors and 3 forewords, assembles in one place a full range of arguments against the plague of hyper-development in Paris. Join Harvard Law School graduate and founding President of the International Coalition for the Preservation of Paris (ICPP) Mary Campbell Gallagher as she promotes the traditional urbanism and architecture of Paris to preserve it for today and for tomorrow. A reception will follow.
