Designtel - The Wave Building, Pierre Doucet

The Wave Building [1979]

Pierre Doucet

An expansive, bladed multi-residential structure reflecting French late-Modernism at its peak, Pierre Doucet’s L’immeuble en Vague (The Wave Building) sits to West of France in the seaside commune of La Baule. Much like other inventive, forward-thinking architects operating in the region at the time (such as Gérard Grandval), Doucet’s work shies away from conventional forms and building techniques, leaning more heavily on a sci-fi ideal of what future living should look like.
