[Church of St. John the Evangelist]

— Histoire de Paris —

Construite entre 1894 et 1904, à la demande du curé de Saint-Pierre de Montmartre, dont la paroisse se révèle trop étendue, cette première église moderne de Paris est l'ouvre d'un disciple de Labrouste: Anatole de Baudot. Novateur à sa manière, ce théoricien officiel, né à Sarrebourg en 1834, en mort chargé d'honneurs en 1915, conçoit l'idée d'une architecture sociale et économique, en harmonie avec l'essor industriel. Rationaliste et progressiste, doué d'une grande influence sur ses élèves, il ose introduire la fonte de fer et le ciment armé, et condamne dans ses écrits le camouflage des matériaux et des structures. L'année de l'inauguration, en 1904, il publie "L'architecture et le ciment arme", livre-témoin d'une époque en pleine mutation, fertile en recherches nouvelles, qui s'achève avec la première guerre mondaile. Si les visiteurs se montrent parfois choqués, au point de se livrer à de vives polémiques, la critique d'art est unanime à saluer l'originalite d'entreprixe. Le décor orientaliste, traité en "modern-style", contraste avec un plan traditionnel, réalisé sur deux niveaux en raison de l'escarpement de la colline.
