Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye

Matija Grguric‘s architectural LEGO project modeled the Villa Savoye, designed by the famous French architect Le Corbusier, who pioneered Modern architecture. The Villa Savoye was completed in 1929 and was meant to be a weekend country house. Here, Matija has captured the style and proportions perfectly in this faithful model.

    Really beautiful! Thanks for pointing that… Anyway, Le Corbusier was Swiss, not French (he’s even on 10CHF banknotes => might be an idea to design mosaics of banknotes BTW!)

    OK. Leigh and I both got eaten by the extremely overzealous SPAM filter thus the double link (and lack of reference to HoMa’s post). I’m beginning to get very sick of that SPAM filter.

    @Leigh & Gambort: Gah! :-( Wish I could do more than comb through the spam queue, but it’s a WordPress plugin (Akismet) over which I have very little control. I’m getting annoyed too, but it’s better than getting hundreds of spam comments, I guess. Sigh…

    ^ I know it’s needed and there’s little we can do but I’m peeved and rather confused at it. Whatever upgrade they added recently obviously had some bugs to iron out.

    Well, he may have pioneered modern architecture, but this was one of his greatest failures. It only looked like it worked. He only avoided getting sued because the second world war broke out.
    Brilliant model anyway.
