The most important works of Marc Joseph Saugey were executed between 1950 and 1960. For a variety of reasons the 1990s was an especially dangerous period for them. Central Station (1954) was in fact demolished, while campaigns had to be mounted to save a number of other projects that are now protected. The rehabilitation process had four stages or aspects: agitation; scientific study (the technical description and history of the buildings); development of restoration plans; and the management of the restoration itself. Thus in 1999 a detailed description and formal specifications were drawn up for the restoration of the Miremont-Le-Crêt building; the exterior of the Mont-Blanc Centre complex was restored in 2004-2005 in accordance with the specifications prepared in 1996; and Cinema Manhattan (Le Paris) was restored and transformed in 1996.
Originally built by M.J. Saugey, 1951-1954.
