1868 – Palais de Justice, Paris

Architect: Joseph L. Duc & Honoré Daumet


Part of the much larger Conciergerie complex, this extension of the Palais de Justice was built between 1857-68. It faces a small tree filled square – Place Dauphin which was intended to be a market square with two identical terraces of houses. The remainder of the building is much earlier and contains several courtyards and the celebrated Gothic church of Sainte Chapelle.
