NOTES: La Butte-Rouge is one the biggest interwar social mass housing schemes in the environs of Paris. Situated 12 km south of the city, it was the brainchild of Henri Sellier, director of the Office public d'habitations de la Siene. Originally conceived in 1919 by the architects Joseph Bassompiere and Paul de Rutte as part of the Paris extension plan, construction didn't start until 1929, continued up till the mid 1930s and did not resume until after the second world war. Although influenced by the early garden city movement, the layout here was made more formal with a hierarchy of roadways and public squares. Planting was important and the landscape architect responsible for the overall scheme was Andre Riousse, with the architect Paul Sirvin helping to implement the designs of Bassompiere and de Rutte.

Product overview

Images are printed to order on high quality photographic paper using the latest digital technology. Images can be ordered in either matt, semi-gloss or gloss finish.

If you intend to frame your print behind glass, then we recommend that you select the semi-gloss or matt finish so that you get less light reflection from the print/glass.

The images in our collection, although kept to the highest possible standards, can sometimes display irregularities. These may have been caused during their original printing, or through damage that has occurred before coming to RIBA. In some cases therefore, these may be visible on your photographic reproduction.

Please note that because the original images available come in all shapes and sizes, and will never be cropped or distorted, different images will have different borders. When you order a product, the product choice screen will give you an approximate portrayal of how the image will fit on different print sizes.
