The most prestigious indoor schools received all the attention that the greatest architects of the time were able to provide, whether it be Jacques Gabriel, Contant d'Ivry or Chocat de Grandmaison... While best known for their architecture remain those at Versailles and Chantilly, the project of the architect Pierre Contant d'Ivry for the Château de Bizy in Vernon, which is presented here, remains a famous example.
