Architecture walk in Paris

On Friday afternoon we signed up for a guided visit of early 20th century architecture in Paris. We saw examples of the asymmetry, curved lines, and organic motifs of Art Nouveau (1890-1914):

 We then turned to Art Deco (1920-1940), which is characterized by straight lines, symmetry, bold colors, and geometric shapes.

 We also visited the Maison La Roche by Le Corbusier

 I spent the day thinking about my daughter-in-law, Rachel, who is an architect. I wish she were here to visit with us.

Tomorrow - more from Le Corbusier
