The most extraordinary installation of Falconnier briques I've seen so far are at the Castel Béranger, #14 Rue La Fontaine, Paris, France, designed by architect Hector Guimard in 1898. This wild, Art Nouveau structure's crazy mix of styles earned it the nickname Castel Dérangé, but I'd say it's genius— and some call it Guimard's masterpiece. His use of Falconnier's briques for innovative decoration instead of plain function earn him the #1 spot in this gallery. These photos are all taken by, and appear here courtesy of Vincent Lajoinie, who debuted them on his Paris Archis (Paris Architecture) blog.
