In this video we wanted to explained in a simple and easy way the five point for a new architecture proposed by Le Corbusier in 1926. To explain each point we modeled his masterpiece, the Villa Savoye, and create different animations to show them.
The five points of a new architecture:
- Lift the building over pilotis: The ground floor of the house, like the street, belongs to the automobile. Therefore housing is raised on pilotis to allow the automobile’s movement or the green continuity.
- Free designing of the ground plan: A building floor plan should be free from structural conditioning so partitions con be organized in any way.
- The free facade: The structure separates from facade relieving it of its structural function.
- The horizontal window: The facade can be cut along its entire length to allow room to be lit equally.
- The roof garden: A building should give back the space it takes up on the ground by replacing it with a garden in the sky.
