Architect André Bruyère embodied a unique sensitivity, attached to the expression of sensuality and the quest for a certain marvelous. Born in Orléans on April 17, 1912, André Bloch, a former student of the special school of Architecture, took the name of Bruyère in hiding; after the Liberation he worked in the movement of organizations linked to the Resistance or deportation.
He designed the Rassemblement du souvenir, in the forest of Compiègne, the project of the national monument to the victims of wars (1946), the French monument to the camp of Mauthausen (1950), and built in Fleury-Mérogis the aftercare center of the National Federation patriotic resistant deportees and internees (F.N.D.I.R.P.), of a very plastic sculptural architecture (1948).
André Bruyère edited the second issue of Architecture d'Aujourd'hui (which appeared in the summer of 1945, devoted to Emergency Solutions) and was a member of the editorial board of this review until May 1975, when the old guard of the post-war period will resign.
Among the techniques of emergency construction, he conceives the rocket-ceramic, an invention which allows the economical realization of vaults with parabolic curves. He then elaborated for the same material various projects of great formal freedom: a conch chapel for São Paulo (1949), a flexible shelter with two entrances, called La Chaussette (1951), a polychrome village studied with Fernand Léger (1953 ) and a housing project for hot countries (1954).
Although none of these projects came to fruition, they nevertheless contributed to forging a language that would flourish with the construction, in Guadeloupe, of the Hôtel Caravelle, sheltered under ample movements of the roof in a thin veil of reinforced concrete (1963).
