Housing Unit - Review

This apartment building was built after the second world war in response to the housing shortage in France. A large building was needed and quickly. Architect Jean-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris said Le Corbusie designed for the city a building the proportions of which were based on Modulor principles - associations to human morphology, the golden ratio and the Fibonacci sequence. The result was a construct of Brutalist architecture, and 337 homes in 23 designs, completed in 1952. It also has an internal street, a bookshop, bar and restaurant and rooftop gym and terrace. For its time, the building was practically a thing from the future. In 2016, the remarkable building was added to the World Heritage of UNESCO list. You can just walk into the building to check it out. The security guard in the lobby will let you know which areas are accessible to you.

Housing Unit, Marseille Reviews

Google+
  • Piece of art on housing for present and future. Very well modeled on how we can efficiently use a piece of land to build a community based living. Everything in one place, such a relief to live here without getting out in the traffic to drop off kids or enjoy a cup of coffee or meal with your loved ones. Hopefully the future developers implement this great idea to spread the modern architecture

  • Really interesting example of Le Corbusier’s work. We had the guided tour, and the guide was terrific. The tour is worthwhile to see inside one of the apartments. And the highlight is the roof terrace.

  • The LeCorbusier construction is open to the public free of charge, though visitors are required to sign in to a visitors book. A horrid little man nudged open his kiosk door and bellowed out when I crossed an invisible line before signing his meaningless book before which there was a gathering of visitors signing in, including my partner who was signing us both in. There's no verification process or scrutiny whatsoever so you could easily write Donald Duck, plus party of seven quacks or Islamic State senior officials away day and nobody'd be any the wiser, not least little job's worth who couldn't even see the book from inside his (albeit beautifully, brutally designed) cabin. The architecture is to very much to my liking. The 'welcome' personnel decidedly ignorant and unattractive.

  • For those who seek an authentic architectural experience

  • Amazing crazy building
