In 1656-57, the great classical architect Louis Le Vau was commissioned by Abel Servien, Surintendant des Finances to Louis XIV, to rebuild the central pavilion of the château at Meudon, which Servien had recently acquired from the House of Guise.  In this intriguing, working drawing, the architect has provided three alternative designs for the central pavilion of the building, two of them drawn on separate pieces of paper, hinged to the first at the top. 

The uppermost of the three designs is the closest to the building that was ultimately constructed, although in the end the lantern, which here closely resembles one designed by Le Vau for Vaux-le-Vicomte, took the form of a truncated octagonal pyramid.  One of the alternative designs is very reminiscent of Le Vau's staircase façade at the Hôtel Lambert, and in the other he incorporated a gently curving bay façade, more or less identical to the one he executed at Vaux-le-Vicomte. 

Le Vau was involved in many of the most important royal and aristocratic architectural commissions of the mid-17th century, working on projects that included the châteaux of Vaux-le-Vicomte, Vincennes and Raincy, the Collège des Quatre-Nations (now housing the Institut de France), the church of St. Sulpice and the Hôtel Lambert.  He also collaborated on both the Palace of Versailles and the Palais du Louvre.
