LA CELLULE LE CORBUSIER. L'Unité d'Habitation de Marseille
The most famous example of the modernist residential housing design principle developed by Le Corbusier is located in Marseille and was built between 1947 and 1952. In 2006 Jean-Marc Drut began to meticulously restore an apartment he had purchased in the building to its original state, a project which aroused interest among fans of Le Corbusier’s work. The idea then emerged to deepen the graphic analysis of the apartment’s material reality and details, and to publish the results of the research. This publication, which matches the form of the republished volume of ‘L’Architecture vivante’ on E.1027 House by the Sea, includes new documentation and illustrations.
