Between 1919 and 1939, Paris experienced a cultural and intellectual boom. This blog will feature artists, writers, composers, musicians, and designers. Paris was at its cultural peak.
Eugène Adolphe Henri Georges Wybo (1880 – 1943) was a French architect, best known for the Printemps department store chain.
Wybo’s first major commission as an architect was for the casino in Deauville, the closest seaside resort to Paris. He drew his inspiration from the Grand Trianon of Versailles. The work combined ostentatious luxury with functionality, and led to further commissions.
Wybo designed the Hotel George V near the Arc de Triomphe in 1928. The hotel has a huge marbled foyer, a large anteroom and a huge interior corridor, so it could accommodate a crowd of visitors. In 1929 Wybo designed the Hôtel du Golf in Deauville.
