Selection of three houses signed by three best design architecture Masters: Glass House by Philippe Johnson; Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe; Villa Savoye of Le Corbusier. Get to know the story to design today carefully.
Timeless architecture symbols, today we are talking about three projects that have remained a point of reference for designers over the years. Three houses, three best monuments of modern design architecture, in common with the connection with the surrounding space.
Glass House is a 1949 project by Philippe Johnson, an hour train from New York, this home is a glass teak conceived as an observatory overlooking the surrounding landscape, a five acre land. The plant is free, with the exception of the cylindrical volume that contains the bathroom and the fireplace, completed by the furnishings from apartment in Johnson of New York, many of which are designed by Mies van der Rohe for his architect friend.
The Farnsworth House of Mies van der Rohe, 80 miles from Chicago, is a symbol of the Modern Movement, designed between 1945 and 1951 as a weekend home for Dr Edith Farnsworth. This steel glass house is in a rural setting, surrounded by nature outside and inside, featuring the presence of a single service block, is considered the poster of the creative genius of Mies van der Rohe.
The Villa Savoye designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Janneret between 1928 and 1931, twenty kilometers from Paris, is one of the monuments of modern architecture. The fame of this project is also due to the presence of five canons of international style: the free plan, the pillars, the free facade, the long window. The presence of all these factors continues to astonish despite the design year.
Three houses to tell the best architecture design with a unique narrative, all of a source of continuous inspiration.
