Tzara’s House



What have they done to the house of Tristan Tzara in Avenue Junot, just behind Sacre Coeur, built for him in 1926 by Adolf Loos? It looks like a cream doughnut in its over-cleaning and the application of too-white paint. Not only that, the new residents have all the wrong kind of stuff, and have put wicker fencing round the top. A homeless person sleeps in the canopy of the doorway and there is a no-parking sign screwed to the front door. What is happening to Paris with stuff like this? When I first saw the Tzara House ages ago, I thought it was just the move from Charles Rennie Mackintosh that brought building into the new century. SC
