Le Corbusier in Rézé: 50 years
The village of Rézé near Nantes had a party this year to celibrate a young monument. The Maison Radieuse by the famous architect Le Corbusier exists 50 years.
The Maison Radieuse is a huge appartment building, completed with shops and a school, a city on its own surrounded by a spacious park. It was the same idea he applied in 1952 in Marseille.
The buildings are compulsory stuff for student architects. If if you don't like a concrete colossus, you still can enjoy the view from the roof. In Rézé you have to participate in a guided tour, in Marseille you may go to the roof whenever you like it.
