Few days ago I wanted to enjoy again of the sensual forms of Guimard's architecture. Many buildings of the french master of Art Nouveau take place in the XVIe arrondissement in Auteuil.
A short walk from Avenue Mozart to Rue Boileau teach a lot about the origin of modernism. The quarter offers historical eclectism of XIX century as well as many avant-garde from Art Nouveau to Art Deco and Modernism.

exemples of architecture without order




















Hotel Guimard - 120 Avenue Mozart
Guimard's house. Organic forms, fluids and sensual. One of its masterpieces.














An interesting shot showing the evolution of Guimard's art. Both buildings are signed by Guimard. First one was erected in 1912, the second on in 1926. This is illustrating how brutal was the end of Art Nouveau in Paris.


Another exemple of Art Nouveau by Ernest Herscher



Immeuble Jassedé, avenue de Versailles Guimard. 1903
At the beginning of the XXth century, Auteuil is changing. Many buildings are erected. The styl is often historical. The Immeuble Jassedé make the difference. It wear all the programmatic of Art Nouveau seen by Guimard.







Hotel Danois - Audiger et Richard - 1907
An architectural hybridization between Art Nouveau and Orientalism.





Immeuble de Guimard - Rue Henri Heine - 1926
One of the last Guimard's building. Intempting to follow the Art Deco experiment, Guimard is hesitating. We can find on this façade trial and error. Some kind of neo-gothic reinterpreted, technical experimentation, art deco geometry... and still some Art Nouveau reflex.



Finally...
Studio Building - Henri Sauvage - 1926
Moderism is born. This building wanted to look like artist workshop but it is in fact a prestigious apartment house.
Walking by the street, we can find the building quite uninteresting, probably build in the 80's. But being erected in 1926, it had played a role in the thinking of Modernism in Paris.
We can touch here the hesitation of the architecture between the nudity of geometry, asked by modernism, and ornament. Henri Sauvage find a curious way to wear the façade with this colorful ceramic.












Those buildings are not the most famous of this area, but they are quite interesting for who is regarding the thinking of modernism its roots and its evolution.
(Sorry for my bad english.)

Don't say this.
Nice pictures of a beautiful district.

The homogenious city of Paris...an other false clichee.

Fantastic thread, I love the different architectures you are showing here. I have been two times to Paris and I have the most touristic views in my mind that are the responsible, for its grey-beige tones that Paris architecture is rather homogenic, but not. I know that I had little time to enjoy and explore Paris as I would have liked

Last Guimard's building erected in 1928. Art Nouveau was abandonned. The architect choose to mix gothic revival and art deco. That was not a brillant success...







Jardins Albert Kahn









various architectures around rue Raynouard and rue de la Pompe : Eclectism, Art Deco, Modernism

The "cité universitaire" in the XIV arrondissement... one country, one house, one style. This area has been built since the 20's. Some prestigious architect as Laprade, Dudok, Le Corbusier or Claude Parent realized there masterpieces of architecture of the XXth.





Dudok - College of Netherlands



































Two kind of brutalism :

The structural brutalism of the House of Iran by Claude Parent





Brutalism aesthetic of the House of Brazil by Le Corbusier

Thank you for the amazing shots, it helps to seize the architectural diversity of Paris, which is not that remarkable from street level. At last you took pictures of cité universitaire !
