    CORBU'S MAISON TERNISIEN

    The house was designed for a couple who approached Le Corbusier after he lectured at the Sorbonne in 1924.

    The overall building form is influenced by the shape of the triangular site and the interior by the requirement of merging two different programs: a double-height space with a sleeping balcony for the wife's painting studio and a pie-shaped one-story space for the husband's music studio. — Published 2013.0130

    MAISON CARRÉ BY ALVAR AALTO

    Maison Carré in Bazoches-sur-Guyonne, France, is a private house by Alvar Aalto which is to a major extent stamped by the owner being an art collector: one could say that it is at the same time a private palais and a gallery. — Published 2011.0831

    POMPIDOU-METZ BY SHIGERU BAN

    Shigeru Ban has recently been spending almost three-quarters of his time outside Japan, and one main reason for this pattern is the fact that he was building the Centre Pompidou-Metz, an ambitious extension that the Parisian institution has undertaken in the eastern French city of Metz. — Published 2011.0622

    GARDEN MEANING

    Let us put an end to the endless disputes between those who think that "anything goes" (what the French call bouillon de culture: a sort of "culture medium" or "broth") and those who are unconditional supporters of a single, unique "good taste." — Published 2011.0413

    HOUSING ON RUE DES VIGNOLES

    Eden Bio can be difficult to find. One might think it would be hard to conceal almost 100 new public housing units in this part of Paris's 20th arrondissement, but local architect Édouard François has managed to do so, inserting rows of low-rise apartments, duplexes, and small houses into the middle of a city block while presenting a minimal, modest face to the street on three sides. — Published 2010.0317

    LES ARCHIVES DÉPARTEMENTALES

    There is something inherently abstract about the government archive. Storage of old records can too easily be seen as a utility function free of aesthetic aspiration. Compared to a classic library program, an archive might be seen as exaggerating the stacks while minimizing the interacting human element. In some archives this tendency leads to the place where the technical function of storage obliterates the impulse for architecture. — Published 2008.0319

    TO CROSS THE SEINE

    A new pedestrian bridge, "Passerelle Simone de Beauvoir," now undulates across the Seine in Paris. It is the creation of Feichtinger Architectes with consulting engineers RFR, where I work, and Sepia. — Published 2006.1004

    FIRE STATION IN TOULOUSE

    French architect Pierre Debeaux was known as an uncompromising artist, a rigorous geometer, and a passionate master builder. The Jacques Vion Firehouse in the city of Toulouse remains unquestionably his major work, the epitome of his late mature style. — Published 2005.0921

    PARIS AIR TERMINAL COLLAPSE REPORT

    On May 23, 2004, a portion of roof at the Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris collapsed, killing four travelers and injuring three more. Ten months later, an investigation of the innovative vault construction has resulted in a report citing probable causes. — Published 2005.0427
