One of the reason that made me come to live in this city is the Auguste Perret architecture. This talented architect was commissioned to completely redesign a field of ruins into a modern mid 20th century town. And I feel well here. There is no explanation for this feeling. It just seems to fit my eyes. The proportions of the whole urbanistic organisation and its orientation in the existing light is something that works or makes me feel uncomfortable. I used to live in the East of Paris in an area I never liked, because the buildings didn't have the height that pleased my eyes. The streets did not take the light in a way that soothed me. Here, in le Havre, Perret, the architect in chief of the reconstruction, after the town was wiped out by bombs, seems to have found the miracle formula. At least he knew how to harmonize the building proportions and the width of the streets with the geography of the site.
