Le Corbusier, Roof Terraces of the Beistegui Apartment, Paris, (1929-1931)

 The roof terraces of the Beistegui Apartment are without a doubt it’s most celebrated feature and the most clearly indebted to surrealist sources. Clean, classical but playful concrete volumes frame the Mediterranean style topiary, with walls built to such a height as to leave the nearby monuments of the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel tower poking up like comical objects. The sun deck, carpeted with grass, featured a false rococo fireplace that recalls the jarring juxtapositions in Magritte’s Time Transfixed. At the touch of a button, hedges on lift mechanisms could rise or sink to alter the view. The effect was reminiscent of Giorgio de Chirico’s metaphysical cityscapes and interiors. It is known that Le Corbusier had visited the artist’s exhibition at the Galerie Surrealiste in February, 1928.

Nearly everything about Le Corbusier’s philosophy of a rationalist, functional architecture and design would be far removed from surrealism’s attitudes, but with this project he seems to have been open to it’s strategies of unexpected contrasts and playful paradoxes, even whilst placing these within a rationalism entirely foreign to the movement’s aims.

Modern Enjolras with Long Hair
  • Okay so maybe it was a rebellious move, or he was to busy going to the hairdresser or whatnot, but Enjolras ends up growing out his hair into a lush mane that falls somewhere between his shoulders and mid-back
  • It’s gorgeous, of course, but also damn unpractical, and Enjolras can’t braid for SHIT, so he calls up Jehan to teach him a few tricks
  • Thank goodness Jehan’s patient, because Enjolras isn’t and not getting it perfect on the first time is frusTRATING
  • His hair lost its natural ringlets when it grew out, but when Enjolras stays under the rain, he ends up with Disney Prince ringlets. Grantaire can’t help but stare, to be honest
  • His hair is gorgeous and a golden waterfall, but rest assured Enjolras didn’t #wakeuplikethis. He’s got a terrible bed head in the morning
  • You know shit’s gonna go down when he ties his hair into a ponytail
  • He once showed it at a rally with a braid crown, because it’s easier to get rowdy when everything’s tucked in nicely.. It was a surreal vision

I’m howling

So there are big protests going on in France right now, and people in Paris are protesting by standing all night long on the Place de la République. And there was that one guy interviewed on the radio, who got cut off by another protester, so he said : 

“Excuse me, Citizen, but I was talking to the journalist.”

AND I SPAT OUT MY COFFEE BECAUSE ENJOLRAS WAS ON THE RADIO LIKE????
