SIGNED AUTOGRAPH CONSIGNMENT Jeanneret to the Ternisien couple:

"to Mr and Mrs Ternisien
with kind regards
June 1925".

After a lecture at the Sorbonne in 1923, Paul Ternisien, a musician, and his painter wife contacted Le Corbusier to build a minimal house at minimal cost on a small triangular plot of land in Boulogne-sur-Seine. The architect was enchanted by this "an exceptional problem, a challenge, a game of the mind"..
The dwelling was built but almost completely demolished in 1935; the ground floor of the corner wall - replaced by the architect Georges-Henri Pingusson during the construction of a building completed in 1936 - is barely visible today.
