At the beginning of the 50’s, Fernand Pouillon, this genius of modern architecture, offered to Aix first-class achievements: the palaces Albert I and Victor Hugo, the municipal stadium, the whole of the Two hundred dwellings, the Fenouillères , the Regional Center for Physical Education and the Cité Universitaires des Gazelles.
The architect cherished our city and lived there for many years. On the road of Tholonet, in his villa of Brillanne, he welcomed the fine flower of the intelligentsia, Leo Marchutz with whom he collaborated to illustrate his book Ordinances, André Masson with whom he maintained more than privileged links of After his marriage, Georges Duby, the master of the Middle Ages who inspired his novel The Wild Stones, and his friends ceramists Frederick and Philippe Sourdive, Jean and Jo Amado, Leonie and John Buffile, Rene Ben Lisa, Perrier.
