Memories from Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye

Posted in buildings with tags , , , on November 10, 2011 by eliinbar

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?

From eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2011

Here is an interesting Conscious Inspiration interpretation of the Japanese architecture practice ON design partners to Le Corbusier’s five points of architecture. 

Japanese architecture practice ON design partners designed a two-storey residential complex for young artists. 

The design elevates the living units to sit above a semi public courtyard which serves as a multifunctional place for exhibitions, work, and socializing.
