French Riviera: The 20s and 30s


dust jacket with scratch on front panel.

Between Hyères and Menton, the hundred mile long strip of seacoast, only a few hundred yards wide, called French Riviera, was the scene of a multitude of unique and varied architectural endeavors during the interwar period. Luxury hotels, casinos, prestigious public buildings and innumerable villas jealously nestled among the pines: a dialectic of light and shadow, protrusions and hollows creating a decor of unparalleled beauty facing the sea. Describing nearly 30 selected locations between Hyères and Menton, the book is illustrated with more than 180 color photographs and includes brief biographies of 27 architects.
