  • Architecture Road Trip

    60 students, 1 bus, South of France, March '07!!

    This was a discovery trip, mainly a chance to experience the work of Le Corbusier first hand, since we went to so many places I thought it might make for an interesting read!! Forgive me if I make a mess, I don't usually start threads!!

    Day 1: 13.03.07
    Roquebrune Cap Martin
    E1027
    Eileen Gray

    Not strictly Le Corbusier- but heavily influenced b is work!
    View from the Mediterranean side.

      The master bedroom
      I just wish I could get hold of the original shots in architecture viva!! All the details are still intact just degrading quickly.

          . . . and of course the collossal pilotis. . . . what intention!!!!

          I don't think any pictures, drawings or otherwise can really convey the immensity of these columns, literally dwarfing the surroundings.

            One of the interior streets- this is one of the residential ones, note the grocery delivery boxes beside each door and the postboxes. The elevator core is to the right.

              . . . . the hotel room. . . this was one of the cells, approx 1.8m wide. I think you can stay in these for about 60eur a night. . . it's well worth it!!

                          I think they are worth being posted as individual threads, otherwise I would have to split it into different threads.

                            wow. seems that it was a great tour. What else did you see?- sure more than the habitat. I consider to make this summer a great tour to the south of France. Can you kmz in google earth your places, architectural sights?- or post more buildings, interesting things from there.
