Maisons de fortune
There is no more ephemeral architecture in Paris than these makeshift houses. A gust of wind, a gust of rain, sometimes even a kick will be right for these shelters made of misery, recycling, but not enough of instinct. That of surviving "dry", "hot", out of sight, one more day, one more night.
Keeping a photographic trace of these cardboard walls, it may be to make them a little stronger, a little more durable, a little more visible see guilt feelings.
Raoul Haussmann, Hector Guimard, Jean Nouvel ... the Paris of the avenues had its great architects, the Paris of the corners its archi poor.
