The death of Oscar Niemeyer reminded me of an enjoyable September 2010 visit to Paris with the Twentieth Century Society. Among other wonderful buildings including Pierre Chareau’s Maison de Verre we visited Oscar Niemeyer’s Paris Communist Party Headquarters which later became the French Communist Party Headquarters.

The building is being beautifully looked after by the Communist Party and is obviously well loved by its owners and users and a joy to visit.
