Â Guimard, the genius of art deco work in Paris, designed some wonderful metro entrances made of iron and glass in the early 1900’s. Most of them were torn down in time, a big mistake, but a few, like this one at Abbesses remains.
Â I love the glass and the writing of the sign.
Art deco uses the forms of plants to design-very sensual
A work of art used every day. Guimard also did some very interesting buildings in another part of Paris as well as a synagogue in the Marais.
