Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret
location Poissy
function private house
contributed by boeboe

The Villa Savoye, also called "Les Heures Claires" in Poissy, which was built by Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, better known as Le Corbusier, and Pierre Jeanneret between 1928 and 1931, is considered as one of his major works, and even as one of the masterpieces of 20th century architecture. The villa was designed for a rich insurer, Mr. Savoye, and was the result of several years of formal research which revolutionised the traditional codes of residential architecture. The building was constructed in the form of a white parallelepiped with a smooth exterior surface punctuated by a row of windows. It is supported by thin pillars and topped by a roof-terrace. The house sits in the middle of a field, a prime example of a new architectural vision.
