190. Maison du Peuple de Clichy


Dear Alvaro,

And here is Prouvé’s finest hour: the Maison du Peuple
in Clichy: an avant-garde civic/market hall made of
prefabricated parts, held up by a skeletal frame,
housing a free column interior covered with an
incredible operable rooftop.
Probably Le Cobusier's ideal building.

Regards.
R
