If the name Robert Mallet-Stevens isn't immediately familiar to you, you're not alone. The French architect and designer demanded that his archives be destroyed upon his death, ultimately erasing the memory of him as well. Fortunately, his architecture remains, as does rue Mallet-Stevens, a street and six houses that he built in the 1920s. Located in the 16th arrondissement in Paris, it is two blocks from Maison La Roche by Le Corbusier.
