Bellevue II — The inquiry
From the train between Lyon and Valence, I see this white houses group, which immediately reminds
me cubist forms of Modern architecture. The contrast with the urban context is surprising.
I learn later that this project consists in a social housing estate which was built in 2010. During a meeting,
the architect of Bellevue II, Christian Blachot, give me a lot a drafts he did to conceive his project.
Then, in London, I have the opportunity to meet Richard Hollis, we talk about architecture and graphic
design for a while. Now I know that architecture and graphic design share some links.
From architectural project to the construction, from paper drafts to photography… Photographer Lionel
Catelan is agree to work with me and give a nice answer to the commission I ask him. Black & white pictures,
geometrical shapes, he winks at Modernism…
Through a dialogue I had with C. Blachot, an arcticle about my meeting with R. Hollis, and photographs of
L. Catelan, the next publication spreads the whole inquiry about Bellevue II.
