Modern Movement, Modern architecture, Modern housing


The aim of the Fondation Marta Pan — André Wogenscky is to promote the work of the architect and the work of the sculptor. Nowadays there are a lot of issues that arise regarding the accessibility and the museography of the house/workshop in Saint-Rémy-lès-Chevreuse. This house/workshop deserves a wider recognition and in that sense, before making any changes, the intervention has to be considered in the interest of the work's integrity. The house is a complex heritage object due to its conception made by an architect and an artist at the same time, evolving according to their needs and aspirations.
