As part of the 50th anniversary of Le Corbusier’s death, the Centre des monuments nationaux (Center of National Monuments) in partnership with Renault, presented an exhibition about cars at the Villa Savoye: “Cars to live in”.
Indeed, Le Corbusier, a cars lover, designed the villa according to the sharp turn angle of every car owned by the Savoye couple.
The villa’s architectural path begins at the entry of the domain: at the very place where we chose to stage the car, whose lights highlighted the emblematic circular shape of the building.
The night scene was particularly intriguing: who is entering the Savoye’s domain? When: 1930 or 2015?
The poster unquestionably uses the codes of 1930-movie posters revisited by the famous workshop Mondo, thus celebrating the timeless modernity of Le Corbusier’s work.
