Brutalist Map of Paris - 2016

In 2016 Photolanguage were commissioned by Blue Crow Media to research and document the post World War 2 Brutalist architecture of Paris toward the production of a map. The images were taken on a journey through Paris and the satellite centres of Bobigny, Créteil and Ivry-sur-Seine in October 2016. The map includes works by architects such as Michel Folliason, Gérard Grandval, Jacques Kalisz, Oscar Niemeyer, Claude Parent and Jean Renaudie and Renée Gailhoustet.
