Located in Paris at the edge of the Bois de Vincennes, the Palais de la Porte Dorée is an exceptional Art Deco ensemble, a listed historical monument that is for the most part open to the public. Today we invite you as patrons or partners to contribute to the preservation and the enhancement of this unique architectural heritage.

Laprade, Ducos de la Haille, Janniot, Subes, Prouvé... so many great names who signed the architecture, the decoration and outfitting of the Palais de la Porte Dorée. Distinguished by the sobriety of its lines and its imposing size, it is a site where numerous artists – the best of the period and some known internationally – masterfully expressed their creative talent. 

Numerous projects to support

In order to continue the policy of restoring and enhancing the palace, as well as improving visiting conditions, currently several projects are under study: 

  • To enhance the floors, textiles and furniture in the historic Paul Reynaud and Marshall Lyautey rooms that are rare examples of this Art Deco period open to the public;
  • To renovate outside pools, modernize water treatment facilities, replant and refill the fountains;
  • To restore the Aquarium greenhouse; 
  • To upgrade the Tropical Aquarium for better visiting conditions, especially for the handicapped; 
  • To develop the historical tour of the building’s interior.

Companies wishing to preserve this exceptional heritage by putting means and expertise at the service of the Palais will find many incentives to do so: 

  • Patrons sensitive to the beauty of the site will be able to share their enjoyment in the Palais with their clients during awards ceremonies, product launches, seminars, conferences, business meetings, prestigious public relations campaigns (receptions and gala dinners, private visits)...
