Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye in LEGO

villasavoyelego.jpg

Architecture student Matija Grguric's brilliant recreation of Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye is an obvious candidate for LEGO when you think about it. Le Corbusier's square-edged design of the concrete home — completed in 1929, if you can believe it — lends itself perfectly to blocks, being modular itself.

This is the first I've heard of Le Corbusier and "International Style". I can imagine it was a fairly mind-blowing architectural notion at the time, even if the house looks like an office park on stilts today.
