modular design -- the result of Corbu's researches into mathematics, architecture (the golden section), and human proportion " pilotis " -- the house is raised on stilts to separate it from the earth, and to use the land efficiently. These also suggest a modernized classicism.

Bc bc org avp cas fnart corbu html

  • modular design -- the result of Corbu's researches into mathematics, architecture (the golden section), and human proportion

  • "pilotis" -- the house is raised on stilts to separate it from the earth, and to use the land efficiently. These also suggest a modernized classicism.

  • no historical ornament

  • abstract sculptural design

  • pure color -- white on the outside, a color with associations of newness, purity, simplicity, and health (Le Corbusier earlier wrote a book entitled, When the Cathedrals were White), and planes of subtle color in the interior living areas

  • a very open interior plan

  • dynamic, non-traditional transitions between floors -- spiral staircases and ramps

  • built-in furniture

  • ribbon windows (echoing industrial architecture, but also providing openness and light)

  • roof garden, with both plantings and architectural (sculptural) shapes

  • integral garage (the curve of the ground floor of the house is based on the turning radius of the 1927 Citroen)

Le Corbusier’s "The Five Points"

  • The pilotis, or ground-level supporting columns, elevate the building from the damp earth and allow the garden to flow beneath.

  • 2.A flat roof terrace reclaims the area of the building site for domestic purposes, including agarden area.

  • 3.The free plan, made possible by the elimination of load-bearing walls, consists of partitions placed where they are needed without regard for those on adjoining levels.

  • 4.Horizontal windows provide even illumination and ventilation.

  • 5.The freely-designed facade, unconstrained by load-bearing considerations, consists of a thin skin of wall and windows.
