One of the first examples of modern architecture

Come and visit the Savoye villa 33 kilometres north-east of Paris, a modernist manifesto built by Le Corbusier, one of the leading architects of the 20th century.

The Villa Savoye is an internationally-renowned masterpiece built by architect Charles-Edouard Jeanneret – better known as Le Corbusier – and Pierre Jeanneret, between 1928 and 1931. The villa, designed for the Savoye family (hence its name), is acknowledged as one of the founding examples of the modern architecture movement.
