Centre-ville (Downtown): a lively historical heart.

 

As its name suggests, the Boulogne-Billancourt Centre-ville district is located in the heart of the city. Route de la Reine delmits its northern border and Avenue Édouard-Vaillant (to the south) separates it from the République-Point du Jour district. To the east, it is bounded by Rue Thiers and, to the west, by Rue Paul-Bert , Avenue André Morizet and Rue Billancourt.

History

Like the rest of Boulogne-Billancourt, the Centre-ville district was originally a place dedicated to hunting. Its distance from the Seine, however, allowed it to be cleared earlier, under the tutelage of Billancourt’s only farm. In the 19th century, the district became more commercial. While the launderers migrated to other parts of the town, new trades, particularly those linked to the building industry, settled there. Post-war reconstructions and the enthusiasm of architects such as Tony Garnier, Émile André and Jacques Debat-Ponsan gave the neighbourhood its current appearance.

Cultural sites

  • Musée Paul-Landowski: A world-famous sculptor at the beginning of the 20th century, Paul Landowski was awarded the Grand Prix de Rome for sculpture in 1900. His work now has a dedicated museum to the west of the Center-ville district, whose collections were donated by his heirs. We discover in particular his many Parisian works.
  • Musée des Années Trente: The 1930s were a prosperous period for Boulogne-Billancourt. The city decided therefore to provide its downtown with a museum dedicated to this era. Paintings, sculptures, furniture and documents are brought together to offer a transversal artistic perspective on the inter-war period.

Local landmarks

  • Town Hall: Made of reinforced concrete, the Boulogne-Billancourt City Hall was designed by Tony Garnier, in the Art Deco style that characterised the city’s buildings during the 1930s. André Morizet, mayor of Boulogne-Billancourt and sponsor of this Town Hall, wanted to design it on the model of the factories that made the town’s fortune at the time. The building was constructed between 1931 and 1934.

  • Jardin Georgette-Bœuf: This small 235-m2 garden is the last vestige of Boulogne-Billancourt’s bucolic past. Georgette Bœuf’s father was a great horticulturist from Boulogne, of which only this parcel remains. The town turned it into an educational garden.
