Palais de Chaillot was designed in classicizing "moderne" style by architects Louis-Hippolyte Boileau (1878–1948), Jacques Carlu (1890-1976) and Léon Azéma (1888-1978). It features two wings shaped to form a wide arc, but the wings are independent buildings and there is no central element to connect them: instead, a wide esplanade leaves an open view from the place du Trocadéro to the Eiffel Tower and beyond.
