On our third day in Paris, S and I tagged along with Mr. CP's architecture classmates and toured a few of Le Corbusier's projects. For those who don't know, Le Corbusier is a pioneer of modern architecture. His five points of architecture -
(1) pilotis elevating the mass off the building off of the ground,
(2) the free plan - separating the load bearing columns from the walls that subdivide the space,
(3) the free facade,
(4) the long horizontal sliding window,
(5) the roof garden.
La Tourette houses a church and 100 dorm-like rooms for students and teachers.
