Art Nouveau / 29 Avenue Rapp, Paris, France

An image of the Lavirortte Building at 29 Avenue Rapp, Paris, one of the best examples of 'Art Nouveau' architecture.

 

The Lavirotte Building, an apartment building at 29 Avenue Rapp in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, France, was designed by the architect Jules Lavirotte and built between 1899 and 1901. The facade is lavishly decorated with sculpture and ceramic tiles made by the ceramics manufacturer Alexandre Bigot. Lavirotte was awarded the prize for the most original new facade in the 7th arrondissement in 1901, and the building today is one of the best-known surviving examples of Art Nouveau architecture in Paris.
