La Chaude Fondue

Posted in building by tot on November 8, 2008

I had Fondue at my teacher’s place with other students. Lecker! But enough for me having one once or twice a year. La-Chaux-de-Fonds is a small town known for watches and, maybe, Le Corbusier. Visited Le Corbusier’s early works to experience their interior space.

He’d opened up interior walls to free plan year by year. This change is not new any more for us, being parallel to the tide of modernism, which has been accepted over time. What’s more interesting to me is an approach to the houses. His major buildings are all conscious about how to show themselves up to visitors as first appearance, so do his early works. I am sure of it after looking at Villa Jeanneret-Perret, and Villa Favre-Jacot.

In the town, grid town planning and sloped landscape make an interesting type of row houses, whose south terrace on the north ground level are on top of the garage out for their south street.
