    2. Hello,
      I spent most of my childhood holidays in the Pyrenean bubbles designed by your father. A wonderful and unforgettable memory that still guides my aesthetic choices today. ( house of the architect Edmond Lay, attraction for boats). I don't think I've experienced such a functional habitat, protective, beautiful and happy… a small token of happiness

    Hello,
    I am writing to you because I have been looking for a miniature of HORCH for a long time 853 AS Lepil Czech Fire Engine 1:43 from the manufacturer AutoCult Artticle Nr.: AC 12006. I found a very interesting article on your website. Myself I collect the miniatures of Auto Union ie. the HORCH / WANDERER / DKW / and AUDI models to scale 1/43 & 1/18. This model in question I unfortunately missed when it was released around October 2017, now we can't find her anywhere, maybe you can help me find the model. (you might know someone who might want to sell their model ?) While waiting for a response from you, Thank you a lot. Hello from Luxembourg. GALMICHE Francois

     
  5. In search of the scale model 1/43 I have been looking for the HORCH model for a long time 853 AS LEPIL Czech Fire Engine du fabricant AutoCult. Please contact me if you maybe have this model, or help me find the model. thank you very much. Yours truly.

  7. Bonjour Virginie,

    Incroyable de te trouver là! Par hasard.. ou synchonisation, en faisant des recherches sur ce type d’architecture Pop Moderne, les bulles fonctionnelle et protectrices et les avancées technologiques des années 60-70 en matière de construction.

    Tout un passé m’est revenu, l’Atelier Maneval, la rue du Cherche Midi, ton père et ma mère qui a peut-etre participer au projet (?). C’est vraiment super que tu fasses un tel hommage au travail de ton père et nous instruise.

    Je fait ces recherches car je vais d’ici peu effectuer une résidence d’artistes au Tétrodon, bulle allongée qui porte la nom du poisson coffre issu d’une réflexion similaire à celle de ton père sur un habitat mobile autour d’une structure de conteneur lui-même dédié au transport.
    Jacques Berce et Henri Ciriani ( mon prof d’archi à UP8, encore une coincidence) ont conçu le modèle type de l’objet. Redécouvert par hasard en 2011, le Tétrodon de Fos-sur-Mer s’est révélé être un module expérimental non développé par la suite. Rénové par l’association Par ce Passage Infranchi Il appartient maintenant à la ville de Martigues (region PACA) et destiné à recevoir des résidences d’artistes. La mienne se fera en Juin, j’habiterais dans le Tetrodon avec un ‘non artiste) et je réflechie à ma proposition que je souhaite reflective et ludique à la fois.
    Voilà..
    Sinon je vis à Marseille et vient parfois à Paris.. Ce serait une joie de te revoir.
    Lorraine
