Le Corbusier and Villa Savoye

19 01 2009

I wasn’t feeling too well today.  It was a great opportunity to sleep and to slow down.  I was looking through my old sketch books and some photos today.  Found these great images from Villa Savoye from a Swiss Architect, Le Corbusier.  The building was build in 1929 in Poissy near Paris.  My prior collection for spring 08 was inspired by this building.  Nothing like studying architecture, art, and fashion in Paris.  Oh, the good old days!

Outside of Villa Savoye.  Such a beautiful building.  I can not believe it was done in 1929.  Still so modern today.

If you have a chance to visit Paris.  Go check out Villa Savoye.  It is an important piece of history in modern architecture.
