From 25 May to 25 November 1937, the Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne (International Art and Technology Exhibition in Modern Life) was held in Paris, France. Both the Palais de Chaillot, which houses the MusĆ©e de l’Homme and the Palais de Tokyo, which houses the MusĆ©e d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, were built for this exhibition, which was officially approved by the Bureau International des Expositions.

Initially, a 2,300-foot (700 m) tower (‘Phare du Monde’) was the highlight of the show, which was to have a spiralling path to a parking garage at the top and a hotel and restaurant above it. As it was just too risky, the project was abandoned.
