Le Corbusier is arguably the most influential architect of the 20th century.
This project focuses on his unsurpassed ambition for collective housing, and revisits a specific line of thought of Le Corbusier’s: how Certosa del Galluzzo inspired him to create Unite d’Habitation.
The Analysis of this line of thought is structured around the term asceticism. Subsequently asceticism is used as an architectural instrument for proposing a collective housing complex.
