Histoire de Paris

Les Archives nationales
Les Archives nationales sont une création de la Révolution française. Dès le 29 juillet 1789, le règlement de l’Assemblée nationale prévoit la conservation de ses documents écrits, et la nomination d’un archiviste; un décret de septembre 1790 sanctionné par Louis XVI officialise l’institution. Napoléo 1er s’intéresse de si près aux "Archives de l’Empire" qu’il ordonne en 1808 l’acquisition des palais des Rohan-Soubise; le 15 février 1810, il vient même rendre une visite-surprise au garde général Daunou, et se déclare satisfait de l’installation provisoire effectuée à l’hôtel de Soubise. Revant d’un dépôt central européen, l’empereur en pose la première pierre le 15 août 1812 dans l’île aux Cygnes. Son projet est abandonné sous la Restauration, mais, grâce à une patiente politique d’acquisitions et de travaux d’agrandissements, en 1941 les Archives s’étendent sur tout le quadrilatère de l’ancien "Chantier du Temple". En 1983, Stanislas Fiszer remporte le concours pour la construction du CARAN (centre d’accueil et de recherche, des Archives nationales), inauguré en mars 1988.

Comments:
One of the series of signs describing historical places in Paris. The signs were placed starting in 1992 and are also called sucettes Starck (Starck’s Lollipops) after Philippe Starck who designed them.

The sign depicts the old National Archives building, which today houses the State Archives Museum.

History of Paris

The National Archives
The National Archives are a creation of the French Revolution. From July 29, 1789, the regulations of the National Assembly provided for the conservation of its written documents, and the appointment of an archivist; a decree of September 1790 sanctioned by Louis XVI formalized the institution. Napoleon I was so interested in the “Archives of the Empire” that in 1808 he ordered the acquisition of the Rohan-Soubise palaces; on February 15, 1810, he even came to pay a surprise visit to General Guard Daunou, and declared himself satisfied with the temporary installation carried out at the Soubise hotel. Dreaming of a central European depot, the emperor laid the first stone on August 15, 1812 on Cygnus Island. His project was abandoned under the Restoration, but, thanks to a patient policy of acquisitions and expansion work, in 1941 the Archives extended over the entire quadrangle of the former "Chantier du Temple". In 1983, Stanislas Fiszer won the competition for the construction of CARAN (reception and research center, National Archives), inaugurated in March 1988.
