-Corb constantly published books architecture in the morning, painting in the afternoon Maison Domino, 1914 -concrete floor slabs, columns, meant to be a system. Construction system. Columns pulled away from edge. Free to put walls where you want. Got Corb to 5 points. NOT free plan; earlier vision. Allows him to get to 5 points. Similar to primitive hut. Five points of a new architecture – 1926 1. Pilotis – columns raising the building 2. Ribbon Window – view and light 3. Roof garden – foot print of building recreated on roof, justifies flat roof 4. Free walls – can do whatever they want 5. Free Façade – façade is also free to do what it wants Villa Savoye @ Poissy-sur-Seine, 1928 – 31 -very much touches ground. Enter from side usefully. Not seen in images. Breaks grid, ramp becomes autonomous. (back to purist idea) Vers une architecture, 1923 -towards a new architecture in English. But actually “towards an architecture’ White Box: machine aesthetic Means operation of eating, cooking, sleeping became functionalized in here.
