It is followed by Asia with the Maison du Japon, whose façade is characteristic of Japanese construction. The journey finishes in Northern Africa with the traditional interior decor of the Maison du Maroc.
Suggested route: Fondation Deutsch de la Meurthe, Maison du Japon and Maison du Maroc (route is only a suggestion and will depend on the buildings’ availability).
Escape to Latin America and discover the architectural richness of this region of the world. The visit to the Maison de Cuba, inspired by the Spanish colonial style accompanies that of the Fondation Argentine whose architecture is reminiscent of the old estancias de la pampa. The last stage of this journey is the Maison Mexique whose modern style, with simple volumes and furniture by Charlotte Perriand, will surprise you.
Suggested route: Fondation Abreu de Grancher (Maison de Cuba), Fondation Argentine and Maison du Mexique.
Centred on the two buildings designed by Le Corbusier, this tour will present you with the evolution of his architectural thought, and from how he put the “5 points of new architecture” into practice with the Fondation Suisse, to his transition to brutalism with the Maison du Brésil. The visit will end with the Collège néerlandais, a unique construction in France by the Dutch architect Willem Marinus Dudok who was influenced by the De Stijl movement.
Suggested route: Fondation Suisse, Maison du Brésil and Collège néerlandais.
