Item description for Le Corbusier: The Villa Savoye (Le Corbusier Guides (engl.)) (Le Corbusier Guides (engl.)) by Jacques Sbriglio...
The Villa Savoye (1928-1931) in Poissy near Paris represents an innovative house type whose design concept has achieved dual status: an assertion of classical values - the temple that surveys the surrounding landscape - and a contemporary paradigm of the modern dwelling. It is a synthesis of the urban themes and architectural vocabutary developed by Le Corbusier throughout the 1920s. "Total purity", as the architect was wont to say, an oeuvre whose formal radicalism and innovative style have propelled it to the ranks of the most symbolic and significant architectural works of the 20th century, within the realm of private housing.
