  • Frantz Jourdain, a Belgian-considered architect, was chosen to draw the department of Samaritaine. Its first phase began in 1904 in a very nice Art Nouveau, mainly constructed in iron frames and large glass parties and provided with two domes at the top-in itself a cheap solution, so it is not least Jourdan ́s son who was entrusted with the decoration and color choices Which makes the building so beautiful and attractive. The department store had a huge success as a result of low prices and it was expanded with two more buildings up to 1933 with the same architect, but predominantly in the more stringent, symmetrical Art deco. Similar to other department stores around the world, sales from the 1970 and in 2001 bought the LVMH group (Bernhard Arnault) the large complex and in 2010 the conversion started with a Japanese architectural firm. The construction has been halted several times, as the conditions of the city council have not been observed time after time. Upon completion probably in 2020 it must accommodate hotel, apartments, shops and cafes etc. When going over the Pont Neuf or coming out from the metro station, the eye is caught immediately by this very distinctive building, which thus has both a history and hopefully also A future.
