Memories from Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye

Recently I had the occasion to visit the Villa Savoye designed by Le Corbusier (1928-1931) In Poissy, outskirts of Paris, France. 

Here are pictures I took of the Villa Savoye…. less familiar viewpoints. 

My wife’s father summed up my emotional meeting with Villa Savoye in the following words …. And I quote  ….

This building looks exactly like the school I went to, when I was a child 

Could it be that the architect who designed the school of my wife’s father (in the late 40’s) was inspired from Villa Savoye?
