Residential Masterpieces 05 - Le Corbusier - Villa Savoye - Poissy 1928-1931
Le Corbusier's masterpiece, the Villa Savoye, is one of the iconic architectural buildings of the twentieth-century. According to Kengo Kuma, in his introduction to this edition, it is a house that 'stands aloof, beautiful as ever, at a turning point - a turning point for a genius.' Here the building is revisited in this elegant and large scale tribute to the architect. Both full-page, black and white and colour photographs document the interior and exterior of the residence, with particular attention afforded to finer details. Plans and sections are also included alongside Kuma's introduction.
