The bookstore? lift, 3rd street, sea view and free parking!
The bookshop was born in 2002 following the creation of a shop window and a door opening onto the famous Winter Garden of the Housing Unit, which had not been home to shops for many years.
As in any bookshop, the bookseller puts forward her choices. Here they are rare books, out of print or not, new or second-hand, many from foreign publishers' catalogues, as well as adult literature and children's books that tell architectural stories... as well as a few drawings and paintings on the walls. And of course an important selection of books by and about Le Corbusier's work.
Many books also in foreign languages to satisfy an international clientele, whether professional or simply curious to discover, on a scale of one, the Unité d'habitation, this world-renowned reference in modern architecture.
Throughout the year, the bookshop organizes, participates in and relays various events such as Donnez à lire, ArchitectAtWork, Prix du livre Jeunesse, Architectures-Enjeux et regards d'aujourd'hui, etc. for all types of public, whether they are Corbuséen, professional, student, art lover or simply curious.
Since 2002 many authors and artists, French or foreign, have brought us a lot of emotions and shared beautiful moments with us, for young and old alike. In particular, we have initiated an event entitled Quand l'architecture se livre... Its principle is to address primarily the young public by inviting an author of children's literature whose work has a link with architecture: by the very object "book", by the colors, by the illustrations composed of huts or that create cities... Among them: Katsumi Komagata, Anne Herbauts, Max Ducos, David Carter. Then for the greatest of the talks with Claude Prouvé, Michel Ragon, Maylis de Kérangal... Find them in our News feed.
Today it is in an enlarged space, transformed in 2017, that the bookshop continues to offer you an original, enlightened and highly specialized collection of books on architecture, urban planning, as well as beautiful art books and a special selection of various objects and games.
Finally, a brand new website for a more efficient use...
The first version of the online sales website was launched in July 2008, which was a rarity at the time for an independent specialist bookshop. With this new 2019 version, we want to offer you more pleasure and skills in :
- browsing through our new features and finding many original gift ideas ;
- searching by categories or keywords: each item is the subject of a detailed technical data sheet; when you choose one, other related items are also proposed to you;
- returning at any time to your basket and modify the quantity;
- choosing your delivery address, which is therefore different from the billing address (Colissimo Suivi).
Of course you have to create an account the very first time, then you log in with your identifiers in a few clicks. Finally for the payment method several options are offered including Paypal.
