March 2009 - The Remarkable Church that Anatole de Baudot Built

Saint-Jean de Montmartre churchDuring his lifetime, Anatole de Baudot gained a reputation as a distinguished professor of architecture. But he is best remembered for his monument to modernity, the Saint-Jean de Montmartre church. Baudot employed a new system of reinforced cement and brick to build this church, whose strength defied the expectations of city building inspectors. Read about this remarkable structure in this month's Paris Insights.

A new bistrot has recently opened for business on avenue des Gobelins, just steps away from the popular outdoor market of rue Mouffetard. We stopped in to dine at Verse Toujours and spoke with its proprietor, Nicolas Lantuejoul. Read our dining review in this month's Le Bon Goût.

And finally, for our Paris, Past and Present feature, we look at a sculpture created by artist Pierre Roche, who also had a hand in the decoration of the altar of the Saint-Jean de Montmartre church.
