Arch De Villa – Enriching the iconic from within

Arch De Villa – Enriching the iconic from within

PREMISE

Le Corbusier, the well renowned Swiss-French Architect was one of the pioneers for what we refer to as Modern Architecture. He often stated, “The house is a machine for living”. Villa Savoye is an implication of the same idea. Although this Machine for Living could not be used to serve for it’s designated purpose for long, still this monument, built in the 1930s continue to inspire people from the realm of Architecture worldwide even today.

CHALLENGE

Villa Savoye, originally designed as a house is now equivalent to a Temple for Architecture students and professionals alike and is currently open for visitors. How can we maximize and make this monument more conducive to this new function? How can this Villa be made the next Archive Center for Architectural Knowledge?


Short Description

Visualize Modernist ideas for the contemporary world. Thus, the new interior can either be in agreement or challenge Corbusier’s ideas in the context of today’s technology and architecture.
