Fascinated by the work of the Viennese architect Josef Hoffmann, the young Rob Mallet-Stevens adopts the Secession style in the 1910s, using its aesthetic in his first articles on cinema, black and white, Japonism...
In 1923, although his projects are mainly limited to exhibition's pavilions and interior decorations, Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles approached him and commissioned the blueprints of their new villa, in Hyères. This collaboration marked the beginning of his career as an architect, and of his recognition.
Using rare and exclusive documents, this book presents, in five itineraries from Paris to Hyères, the journey of the young and inquiring architect, who will soon be led to an international renown.
