La Maison Française is the french language house of Columbia University. Founded in 1913, it is the oldest such french cultural center on an American university campus. Originally housed in its own dedicated townhouse on 117th Street, which was demolished to make way for the International Affairs Buildings, it moved into Buell Hall (where it shares space with GSAPP) in 1977 after a decade at 560 W. 113th Street, prompted by building code violations at its temporary home.[1]
