    Description :

    “During our visit, Djamel our guide, issued from these habitats seemed very moved by this visit. Facades, roofs, or the schools he showed us, did not appear to be mere historical monuments, but we also saw a past, children playing against the walls, cries in schools... yet, some are closed today, but he was able to retrace the past to us, his feelings, somehow made us share a piece of his life. Value that Le Corbusier himself wanted to convey: the taste of conviviality.”
