The old Palais du Trocadéro
p 134 | The hill of Chaillot was first arranged for the 1867 World's Fair. For the 1878 World's Fair, the (old) Palais du Trocadéro was built here (where meetings of international organizations could be held during the fair). The palace's form was of a large concert hall with 2 wings and 2 towers; its style mixed exotic & historical aspects, generally called "Moorish" but with some Byzantine elements. The architect was Gabriel Davioud.... The building proved unpopular, but the cost of its construction delayed its replacement for nearly fifty years. (Wikipedia)
