RENAULT AND THE PAVILION ON THE ILE SEGUIN, NEAR PARIS
September 10th 2012

Renault opens a heritage and information pavilion on the île Seguin, near Paris.

This Pavilion of commemoration and information is open to the public and draws the link between the Ile Seguin and the neighbouring so-called ‘Trapèze’ district (Boulogne-Billancourt) of yesterday and tomorrow. 

A large chronological fresco will describe each stage in the development of the site since the Middle Ages. Archive imagery, objects, films and testimonies will above all describe the history of the Renault factories. Models, photos and interviews will allow visitors to see the metamorphosis of this industrial site into a new 21st century district which is innovative, sustainable and collective. On the ground floor, a glass display will feature a rotating series of iconic Renault vehicles.
