The 16th arrondissement set the stage for an architectural revolution led by Le Corbusier during the interwar period.
Hector Guimard, Robert Mallet-Stevens, Henri Sauvage and many other architects would build their own homes in the 16th arrondissement, each seizing the opportunity to build a “manifesto” of his individual expertise. Artistic expression would run free, encouraged by the rise of a well-to-do bourgeois class and its openness to the avant-garde movement.
This walking itinerary includes visits of Art Deco constructions, buildings that demonstrate early Modern tendencies and decisive Modern masterpieces, whose construction was made possible by new construction methods using reinforced concrete.
Included in the price: Coffee-break at Palais de Chaillot. Visit Le Corbusier’s Villa La Roche.
