Atelier PLAS - Arcueil, Paris - Construction 1930 - Architecte Jean Beaugrand

Arnaud
1928, the sculptor Charles PLAS wants to build his workshop close to Paris to realize the command he just received : the war monument of Vichy. He then meets a doctor who wants to sponsor his project under condition to build several workshops to organize an artists’ residence. Jean Beaugrand, a Mallet-Stevens collaborator, is the architect in charge of this project. He places on the ground floor the main workshop (9mx10m and 8m ceiling), and the residential part of the family. On the second floor are four other 50m² workshops. These workshops are based above the void of the main workshop. Two 15m pre-stressed concrete beams constitute the main structure of the building. It would be the first private residence using this technique. The delay of Vichy's monument realization forces Charles PLAS to shorten the end of the construction and create a condominium to sell two workshops. The initial project of an artists’ residence has thus never really existed. #1930 #Andre #Architecture #Arcueil #Arfvidson #Art #Artist #Artiste #Atelier #Beaugrand #Building #Campagne #Corbusier #Deco #Dompenon #France #Immeuble #International #Jean #Mallet #Modernism #Modernisme #Paris #Plas #Premiere #Purism #Purisme #Sculpteur #Stevens #Style #Villa
