Architecture

The architect Le Corbusier developed the principles of five key points for a new architecture:

  • a building raised on pilotis pile stilts,
  • a self-supporting structural framework formed by columns and beams,
  • glazed external walls,
  • a flexible open plan (without load-bearing walls) that can be adapted according to the building’s functions and their changes,
  • a terrace roof that acts as a roof garden ( sources )
