Maison la Roche

After visiting « Maison la Roche » in Paris in 2017  I investigated Le Corbusier and his architectural work further and found references to Vitruvius the Roman architect known for his theory of firmitas (strength), utilitas (functionality) and venustas (beauty).

I like the idea of essential beauty not being subject to the vagaries of fashion and that a timeless notion of beauty can be learnt from nature.  

Architecture is the art of organising space and it is the enduring correctness and purity of Maison la Roche in this context that iI wanted to convey in this work.
