Bruno Elkouken - France

Bruno Elkouken (1893 - 1968) is a French architect of Polish Jewish origin. During the second world war, he went into exile in the United States.
The 1930s saw the birth
of the modern movement in Paris, some buildings constructed by the architect Bruno Elkouken became very iconic through their geometric forms.
This however, does not question the traditional arrangement of Parisian buildings, as they are erected since the nineteenth century.
In August 1941, he asked Auguste Perret to support his candidacy for the professional association, the Order of Architects, which he finally joined in 1945.
After World War II he joined the planning center for the reconstruction of the city, under the direction of the chief architect Jean Niermans.
