Fondation GoodPlanet – Domaine de Longchamp

GUIDED TOUR

Located in Paris, just 10 minutes from Porte Maillot, opposite the Hippodrome de Longchamp racecourse, the Domain is composed of a castle, two wings, and a Medieval tower. Other than its ancient buildings, a 3.5-hectare park, most of which is classified as a World Heritage site, surrounded by water, is home to a vast diversity of fauna and flora. A rarity in Paris, and up until now private, that the Foundation is strongly committed to preserving. Open to the general public as of spring 2017.

THE CASTLE

With its exceptional dimensions and its versatility, the Caste is the ideal venue for hosting a variety of events. An adjustable space to welcome diverse audiences on weekdays and weekends.

The castle’s upper floors house a cinema theatre and the HUMAN exhibition, with its previously unheard personal accounts.

THE TOWER

The former dovecote of the Longchamp Abbey – founded in 1255 – was transformed into a battlement towers in 1858. This tower is the only remaining vestige of the site’s Medieval past. In its centre lies the first private elevator in France, made of metal and wood, the finishing touch of this atypical tower.

The GoodPlanet Foundation will be calling on renowned and committed artists to design exceptional installations to create a poetic experience and thus begin a new chapter in its history.
