1146. Geneve. La Maison Ronde
















Dear Pierre,

Maurice Braillard, the designer of the Round House,
had in common with Alvar Aalto his strong professional
interest on housing and his refusal of strict functionalism.
This well-known semicircular building in Geneva was also
as typologically experimental as it was the Schönbühl
residential tower that Aalto, along with Fleig and Wandeler,
built in Lucerne some 30 years later.

Best wishes,
R
