Schmap has included my photo of La Vieille Charité Center in the newly released second edition of their Schmap France Guide.

"In 1951, the international architect Le Corbusier used his personal prestige to help the Vieille Charité in being classified as a 'National Historical Monument.' The restoration works were decided in 1962 and started in 1970. They lasted till 1985 and cost over 100 million francs."
