Pavillon

Pavillon

he Pavillon de l’Esprit Nouveau was a temporary building in the Exhibition of Modern and Decorative Arts of Paris in 1925 and can be considered a milestone in the definition of the modernism rules.

It was a housing unit built entirely from standardized elements with glass panels, terrace and horizontal windows, typical of Le Corbusier’s work, and was part of a larger project that anticipated the housing challenges of contemporary cities.
Through this building, Le Corbusier developed a kind of architectural political performance. He rejected the rhetorical use of ornaments and wanted to show the world that pure forms, created by industry, also had aesthetic worth. Corbusier transformed modern interiors through the functional emphasis of its elements.
"In 1929, we noticed, looking back, that the "Pavillon de l’Esprit Nouveau" was a turning point in modern interior design and a milestone in the evolution of architecture." Le Corbusier extract, Oeuvre complet, volume 1, 1910-1929 www.fondationlecorbusier.fr
