La Corbusier's Villa Savoye

Some of Barbie's most favorite Ken's are very modern fellows... Hipster? Hush your mouth! Never! These guys appreciate the finer things including great furniture & architecture. As a matter of fact, one of her oldest favorite Ken's love himself La Corbusier and his modern architecture. Barbie can't blame him at all. He's one of her favorites as well. 

La Corbusier's Villa Savoye 

Situated in Poissy, a small commune outside of Paris, is one of the most significant contributions to modern architecture in the 20th century, Villa Savoye by Le Corbusier.  Completed in 1929, Villa Savoye is a modern take on a French country house that celebrates and reacts to the new machine age.  The house single handedly transformed Le Corbusier’s career as well as the principles of the ; becoming one of the most important architectural precedents in the history.  Villa Savoye’s detachment from its physical context lends its design to be contextually integrated into the mechanistic/industrial context of the early 20thcentury, conceptually defining the house as a mechanized entity.” - Arch Daily

Would you love this modern gem enough to live in it and brag about it?

Barbie most definitely would!
