Villa Savoye: Examples of Modern Architecture

Located near Paris, Villa Savoye, built by Swiss architect Le Corbusier, is one of the most well-known modernist homes. This work follows Le Corbusier's "five points," or basic principles for modern architecture built from reinforced concrete. First, the home is elevated by columns to keep it off the damp ground. Adhering to Le Corbusier's other tenets, the home also features a flat rooftop terrace, horizontal windows, a freely designed facade and an open interior layout.
