description
The remodelling of the remains of the restaurant built for the Universal Exposition of 1929 proposed, in essence, the addition of a glazed volume covering half of the complex and supported on one of the two terraces.
This made it possible to break with the rigid compositional scheme and give greater freedom to the plan. At the same time the building veils, reveals, permits or impedes the line of sight according to the light, endowing it with complexity and adding a certain mystery to an anodyne building that was to be conserved.
