A note regarding the palais
Article on magazine “Cuaderno de Notas”
It would be on July of 1926, after the competition called by the Edmond de Polignac Princess´s Foundation, when Le Corbusier obtained the commission to build what it would become his first palais, the Palais du Peuple on Paris. A project that, located on a neglected and irregular plot left behind by the set of shapes already built for the main building, had to serve as an extension to the important part of dormitory that l´Armee du Salut had already established as a refugee for the homeless. This is where the present “notes” follow in: on the continuous transformation that took place on the project inside the number 35 on the Rue de Sevres, with the objective of dusting off some of the key aspects of that first creative track blurred by history; going back along the line of the Palace for the People of Paris.
