    Description :

    “Le Corbusier...despite the fact that he was reaching the end of his life, was very happy to obtain such a project, a global project where everything had to be done and that he realized as some kind of testament...I see it like a testament-piece with its pyramid, its cube, with its idea of the rising man...There is something in this piece that touches and moves people from all social layers.”

    André Reynard, first deputy of the city of Firminy and vice-president of Saint-Étienne Metropole
