Architecture Spotlight: Parisian Housing of the 1960s and ’70s

If there were ever a place that took every architectural trend to its outermost limit, it would be Paris. The housing structures below were all designed by Parisian architect Jean Renaudie and his wife Renée Gailhoustet between 1969 and 1975. In the daring shapes and unusual configurations of the buildings, you can see that the mid-century designers had very little regard for architectural norms of the time, and we love them for it.
