Video: Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye

Onnis Luque, an architectural photographer based in Mexico City, shared with us one of his productions on video, ’s classic Villa Savoye. Completed in 1929, Villa Savoye is a modern take on a French country house that celebrates and reacts to the new machine age. The house single handedly transformed ’s career as well as the principles of the International Style; becoming one of the most important architectural precedents in the history. Situated in Poissy, a small commune outside of Paris, this project marks one of the most significant contributions to modern architecture in the 20th century.

    An okay video but why was it shot in black and white? This building has some really nice subtle use of colour which is completely lost here.
