a momentary vignette | a brief, beautiful glimpse of architecture, design, and art!

Villa Savoye
October 9

Perhaps no other structure better demonstrates the ideals, concepts, and theories of famed architect Le Corbusier than this residence located near Paris at Poissy, France... Villa Savoye. Built in 1928-1931, Villa Savoye is a pure white box suspended above the landscape on a grid of thin columns or pilotis. Every element of the house... the pilotis, rooftop garden, open plan layout, horizontal strip windows, clear functional separation, and the influence of the automobile... are elegantly composed to create a 'machine for living'.
