 The module on a large scale

Fernand Pouillon. Résidence du Point du Jour. Paris, 1957-1963

“The facade reflects the pragmatism and standardization used for building the type. Modulating and simplifying the enclosure solution does not allow for any concessions to be made.

The north-facing facades are modulated using pre-cast concrete frames filled in with either glazed metal profiles or reinforced concrete lattice panels.

All the south modules are glazed and are set back so that the overhang of the slab shelters the interior of the dwelling from excessive sunlight.”

Extract from “Story 07: Cristal Liquide” included in the book 10 Stories of Collective Housing
