As part of a renovation program in Paris 14th arrondissement, an area near the Montparnasse railway station, this scheme demanded a specific architectonic vocabulary for its sensitive context, which would essentially respect the configuration of the existing urban fabric.
The baroque provides the language necessary for the shaping of uniquely concave spaces. Baroque style composition takes into account all the points of view in space. It prepares the way for the destruction of the rigidity established by the systematization of the building industry. By applying the essence of baroque architecture, here the façade is not treated as a mere wall.
