Model apartment of Auguste Perret

Interesting
A fine reconstitution of the show flat that Auguste Perret presented at the 1947 World Fair and two years later to the inhabitants of Le Havre whose town was to be rebuilt. The visit illustrates the architect's project and his desire for rationalised, flexible space. The simple, functional furniture by decorators René Gabriel, Marcel Gascoin and André Beaudoin, along with a large number of daily objects, bring the display to life and illustrate post-war social evolution.
