In the process of research certain leads directed me to a large residential complex not far from the centre of Algiers. During the 1960s, the prominent architect Fernand Pouillon planned several residential complexes for the French and Algerian population. His projects are remarkable due to their adjustment to the topography, their differentiated design of buildings and open space as well as the integration of traditional African elements into modern architecture. Pouillon’s large residential complexes still exist in our days, among Algiers’ citizens they are considered as much sought after places of residence.
