Fernand Pouillon. Boulogne-Billancourt. Paris

June 15, 2010

 Fernand Pouillon. Boulogne-Billancourt. Paris

The Point-du-Jour residential complex, 1957-1963, is contemporary with Le Parc in Meudon, a work by the same author. In this case it is somewhat smaller. It is made up of 2,260 dwellings and a shopping area. Located in the west of Paris, it is in an area known for its high purchasing power.

The complex follows the plan of open horizontal blocks and tower blocks, in a composition which distances itself from the closed block. The built area is made up of open spaces, squares, gardens and interior courtyards free from motor traffic and private vehicle parking. Pouillon inserts these volumes into the dense urban fabric of Boulogne-Billancourt by freely playing with articulated volumes. The facades, in some cases fully glazed, lend a surprising lightness to the complex.

In 1955 Pouillon had founded the developer of this project, the  Comptoir National du Logement, CNL. In 1961 the bankruptcy of the developer led to a three-year prison sentence being given to Pouillon, who gave up the work two years before its completion.
