An example of normanized architecture
The Fish Market, also called La Poissonnerie of Trouville-sur-Mer in the Calvados department, was built in 1936 under the mandate of Mayor Fernand Moureaux, elected in 1934. It is now located on Boulevard Fernand Moureaux, to whom it pays homage. The winners of the architectural competition - Maurice Vincent, architect in Trouville, in association with Marcel Davy and Maurice Halley - erected a reinforced concrete structure. They normanized it by adding false timber framing, the watchtower corner, and the entrance to the auction inspired by the Lieutenance of Honfleur. This example of an architectural policy of Normanization was listed as a Historical Monument on September 14, 1992.
