In this post, I want to introduce a rarer option that the Unite D’habitation in Marseille roof  terrace is MVRDV’s morphological inspiration source For at least three buildings and projects they designed.

Le Corbusier’s Unite D’habitation in Marseille roof terrace : The majority of the communal aspects in the “Unite d’habitation” do not occur within the building; rather they are placed on the roof. Its flat roof is designed as a communal terrace with  a running track, a shallow paddling pool for children, and an open-air theatre
