Le Corbusier – “Green button Inspiration”

What do you think about this house? 

It seems like a good idea that re-use it self. 

Is this another example of “Conscious Inspiration”?   

The source is undoubtedly Le Corbusiers’ Ronchamp – Chapel….

  1. Aires mateus has used this windows system too, in a very nice way.


    For me, the first inspiration is not Le Corbusier but middle age arquitecture.
    Le Corbusier was very inspired by l’abbayes du Thoronet which uses the thickness of the stone wall to reflect the light

    You can notice tha Le Corbusier use those widows in order to use the reflection too but all the others architects have returned the windows and use the systeme as a aesthetical pattern.

  2. This house was built in the 17th century
    unconscious inspiration for le Corbusier?
