The wooden pavillion, built by André Boucton (1891-1977), an architect making in the Art Deco style, was also known under the name of “pavillon des Gaudes”, representing the Franche Comté region at the International Exhibition held in Paris in 1937, located then on the right bank, on the Passy quayside. Built entirely in wood, it was made for a regional pavilion honoring the wood works. After the exhibition, the pavilion was replaced as soon as 1938 in Mouchard (in Franche Comté region). It burnt in 1971 with all its decoration.
