Exhibition of the Grammonts by John-Francis Lecoultre in front of the model!
An exhibition that explores the towers, high rises and other skyscrapers built or planned, from 1930 to 1970, in Lausanne, Vevey, Montreux and Aminona (Crans-Montana).
Thirty-two monochrome paintings associated with extracts from letters written from 1923 to 1965, thus establishing correspondences between texts and colours, between the Villa “Le Lac” and its residents,
Un été à la Villa (A summer at the Villa) offers an occasion to (re)discover the Villa “Le Lac” in all of its functionalist purity. The exterior restoration is complete, the garden has been restored to its initial state (1925), and the Villa “Le Lac” is enriched by three new graphic works.
Adrien Couvrat – internationally recognised Parisian painter and visual artist – has painted a series of canvases specifically for the Villa “Le Lac” in consonance with the colours of the walls and the dimensions of their openings.
Promoter of the modern movement, theorist and architect, Alberto Sartoris is known for his “paper architectures”. His axonometries, which he published in the form of magnificent serigraphs, are on display at the Villa «Le Lac» with the plans of his "Maison Minimale", models and photographs, as well as an armchair of which two units were made in 1990, authorised and certified by Alberto Sartoris.
The summer opening shows the acomplished restoration work and the work in progress at the Villa "Le Lac".
