Maison Monplaisr

Originally uploaded by flakey.
The Maison Monplaisr built between 1946 - 1950 constitutes the 'chef d'oevre' of the modernistic architect loius caillat (1901 - 2002). The architectural composition is organized around two vertical cylinders and the horizontal drapes of the monumental brise-soleil of each floor, also playing the part of air deflectors. The entry porch of the property evokes the the 'solar bird' (1944-46) by Juan Miro.
