Jean Walter is one of the few architects in France to promote the concept of garden cities, which he discovered in England. In Paris, Porte de la Muette, the “Walter buildings” were created from 1928 to 1931 with the support of the architects of the Administration. Set in a vast quadrilateral isolated between the ‘Bois de Boulogne’, the ‘Parc de la Muette’ and the Ranelagh garden, these buildings form a neo-classical set, characteristic of the “Art Deco” period. Composed of luxury homes, thought in the most contemporary style for its time, this complex was built as a ‘garden cities’, with real gardens between buildings and roof terraces.
