    Situated in the heart of Paris, the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes was criticised at the time for its overtly temporary and artificial architecture--for being a 'cite d'illusion' and a 'decor de theatre' as opposed to a 'cite reelle'. The Exhibition's emphasis on ostentatious and luxurious display was also widely attacked.
