Treizième arrondissement

The 13th arrondissement of Paris: Not heavily frequented by tourists, the 13th district is a former working-class neighbourhood. Today, it is known primarily for its Asiatic neighbourhood, the Butte-aux-Cailles, as well as for the appearance in the 1990’s of the Bibliothèque nationale de France on the banks of the Seine. Owing to the presence of many recent apartment buildings and high-rise structures, the area presents a new type of cityscape for the French capital, the most recent expression of which is the Paris Rive Gauche project.

In addition to the Tolbiac location of the Bibliothèque nationale de France, also known as Bibliothèque François-Mitterrand, it is also home to Austerlitz Station, the Gobelins tapestry factory and the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital.

In 1981/1982 the first Vietnamese refugees began to arrive in the area. They settled in the high-rise buildings opposite the Stade Georges Carpentier on the boulevard Masséna, the Olympiades platform-built quarter being already largely occupied by many households, including a considerable number of painters and sculptors.

Other influxes of refugees or immigrants from South-east Asia, especially Cambodians and Laotians, later from China, transformed the southern part of the district into a true Asian quarter, relatively open to the city, unlike certain other Chinatowns around the world.
