architect. He graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Paris, and
worked for a time in the office of André Ventre (1874–1951). In the
late 1930s, when he was unable to obtain larger commissions in
Depression-stricken France, his activity was limited to ceremonial
decorations and exhibition displays such as the Pavillon de
l’Elégance at the Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques
dans la Vie Moderne, Paris (1937), and the Salle de la Haute Couture
in the French pavilion at the World’s Fair, New York (1939), which
gave him a taste for theatrical settings. In 1945 he was appointed
Chief Architect of the Houillères de Lorraine, a coal-mining
conglomerate in a drab area where reconstruction and industrial
modernization was urgently needed; as well as industrial structures,
he also designed some single-family workers’ housing such as the
Cité Bellevue (1945–7) in Creutzwald, and this marked the beginning
of his dedication to the improvement of low-cost housing.
