This is our second video that I do in collaboration with graphic designer, Federico Gonzalez.
In this video we wanted to explained in a simple and easy way the five point for a new architecture proposed by Le Corbusier in 1926. To explain each point we modeled his masterpiece, the Villa Savoye, and create different animations to show them.
The five points of a new architecture:
1 • Lift the building over pilotis: The ground floor of the house, like the street, belongs to the automobile. Therefore housing is raised on pilotis to allow the automobile’s movement or the green continuity.
2 • Free designing of the ground plan: A building floor plan should be free from structural conditioning so partitions con be organized in any way.
3 • The free facade: The structure separates from facade relieving it of its structural function.
4 • The horizontal window: The facade can be cut along its entire length to allow room to be lit equally.
5 • The roof garden: A building should give back the space it takes up on the ground by replacing it with a garden in the sky.
It has participated in many festivals like:
• New Urbanism Film Festival: November 7th- 10th, 2013, Los Angeles.
• Architecture + Design festival: April 30th – May 4th, 2014, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
