Who was Émile Aillaud?

Émile Aillaud was a French architect.

His design can be found after World War II in France, such as Les Courtilières in Pantin, Wiesberg at Forbach and La Grande Borne at Grigny, are representative of the attempts to compensate for the uniformity which resulted from extensively industrialized constructional methods by adopting more individualizing urban planning strategies.

This is chiefly achieved in the overall arrangement of the building masses, reduced to smooth abstract forms, in curved serpentine compositions; through the integration of works of art; and finally through the careful handling of public spaces, at times eccentrically shaped and colourfully treated. The residents are thereby given an impetus to identify with their environment.
