Le Palais idéal
(Ferdinand Cheval, Hauterives, Public domain)

Did You Know ? (Artless Architecture)

The appellation of Naïve architecture was especially created to designate Ferdinand Cheval's work. Highly demanding in terms of time as well as money, this type of creation sometimes stands out as the achievement of a lifetime, and gives rise to places strongly charged in emotion and symbolism.

Among the most famous constructions of Naïve Architecture, we find Ferdinand Cheval's Palais idéal (France), the House of Mirrors by Clarence Schmidt (United States) and Watts Towers by Simon Rodia (United States).
