Description

Text in English and German. If there is one building by Le Corbusier that represents a synthesis of his basic concepts it is certainly the Unite d'habitation built in Marseille in 1946-52. This built manifesto does not simply put forward a social model as a utopia, but also the unity of architecture and town planning. It is one of the most significant buildings there has even been, but it also triggered a great deal of controversy. The story of the response to it has been recorded in order to investigate why this extremely ambitious project in particular should have caused such a conflict between intention and effect.
