The Artist

Stéphanie Lacombe was born in Figeac, France in 1976. A graduate of the National School of Decorative Arts, she lives and works in Paris. She is a member of the Picturetank.com agency and was awarded the Niepce prize in 2009 for her work "La Table de l'ordinaire" (Portraits of ordinary life). Her personal work revolves around family intimacy.


La Cité Radieuse


A radiant city or the work of a madman?! Whatever your opinion, "La Cité Radieuse" remains a favourite topic of conversation! Built by Le Corbusier in 1952, this complex was designed to offer a strikingly airy alternative to the then-fashionable towers and blocks, and in doing so struck up major controversy. 


But from its status as an architectural novelty it has now become a myth and a candidate for the UNESCO World Heritage label. It is now home to the MAMO - a contemporary art centre designed by Ora Ito.
