An unusual building
Until WWII, the 11th arrondissement used to be a very industrious arrondissement. Several buildings of that time still remain in the neighbourhood exactly as they were built. It's the case of this charming new gothic style house, built in 1891 by architect Péchard. Located cité de la Roquette (off la rue de la Roquette) it used to be the home and the workshop of a cabinet maker called Dugast as the original sign shows it.
If you want to know more about the Festival, I wrote a little note on the "making of". It's been a tough week end; all I want now is... Go to bed!
