Architect(s) : Nere, chevalier et René Crevel

The Palace of Handicrafts attracted attention by its modernism without excess, its sober lines, its subdued lights.

Not only could you admire the objects on display in a large central shop, but you could also find a travel agency, information offices, a library and a restaurant.

There were no flashy colours, but large areas of glass, sand-engraved using a new technique, and harmonious ensembles in the large festival hall, which was the setting for many events and congresses.

Foreign participants included Austria, Great Britain, the United States, Finland, Ireland, Romania, Switzerland, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia.
