|Discussion||Maison de Verre Commentary
"The remarkable Maison de Verre was inserted into an existing building and is one of the unique buildings of the twentieth century... The dissolving of views through semi-transparent materials, the juxtaposing of metal and glass, 'free' space and solid add a dynamic dimension to this house which almost takes it into the realms of Surrealism."

Address: 31 Rue St-Guillaume, Paris
