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 the reason for these shelters made of misery, recuper ', of resourcefulness but especially 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 avenues had its great architects, the Paris of the recesses its archis poor.
