This lecture mainly talks about the renovation of Paris in the 1890s.The Paris renovation was a public program commissioned by Napoleon the third and directed by Haussmann. Napoleon the third schooled Haussmann to bring air and light-weight to the middle of Paris and to empty the sewages. Moreover, he also asked Haussmann to plant more trees, build roads and to make the city safer. The reason for doing this was that the old Paris had many serious problems such as overcrowding, diseases and crimes.
