Notes NOTES: The garden city of Le Plessis-Robinson was built 1924-1939 from plans drawn by the architect Maurice Payret-Dortail and was completed after his death in 1929 by architects Jean Demay and Jean Festoc. It was also one of a series of social housing projects realised between the two world wars under the aegis of Henri Sellier, director of the Office public d'habitations de la Seine.
