Aus Wikipedia. Nicht dargestellt. Auszug: The Villa Savoye is considered by many to be the seminal work of the Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier. Situated at Poissy, outside of Paris, it is one of the most recognisable architectural presentations of the International Style. Construction was substantially completed ca. 1929. The house was emblematic of Le Corbusier work in that it addressed "The Five Points," his basic tenets of a new aesthetic of architecture constructed in reinforced concrete: The Villa Savoye was designed as a weekend country house and is situated just outside of the city of Poissy in a meadow which was originally surrounded by trees.
