Maison La Roche

Yoshiharu Tsukamoto Lab. (Tokyo Institute of Technology)

The windows of Le Corbusierʼs Maison la Roche. Inside the gallery, a long, curved strip window is installed above the curving ramp, and as one climbs the ramp, the outside scenery gradually comes to view. The long strip window allows light to reflect off of the ceiling, dimly lighting the room. The strip window in combination with the columns creates a characteristically Modern architecture.
