...the Palais des Congrès is somewhat of a 'baroque' re-interpretation for the Villa Savoye, and holds the key to the otherwise ethereal promenade architecturale.
Additionally, the main floor (level) of the Palais des Congrès is very much (spatially and programmatically) what a major portion of airports are now a days--compacted 'cities' in a sense. Moreover, the ramps (which ultimately) lead to the sky (to a huge roof garden) carry the airport analogy/metaphor ever upwards. The Palais holds other goodies as well, for example, see for what Le Corbusier places on the main auditorium stage. Is it a swan song?

Re: facadism
I liked the images of the Henry Miller too. I can understand the ire at what these 'false' facades represent, as well. Nonetheless, the images (for me at least) evoke memories of the free standing, screen facades that Mitchell/Giurgola Architects incorporated into a fair numbers of their designs mostly during the 1970s (--John, I'm sure you know the M/G building at Columbia U., got any tales to tell?), and I'll collect what images I have and publish them at Quondam soon. I think the immediate precedent for this practice was Kahn's notion of "wrapping ruins around buildings," which (I think) was said in regard to the Library at Exeter (1965-72), but it may have been said in reference to the Meeting House at Salk (1961-62, unexecuted) or even the US Consulate, Luanda, Angola (1959-62, unexecuted).
