I have to say villa savoye was probably the best / most intense experience in the whole trip. It looks great in the nundreds of photos you have seen everywhere but it feels perfect when you walk through it. It's like a huge puzzle and every piece sliped to the right spot. Everything is in the right place. In the same time, the house is extremely playfull. You have to love it.
The best part is that on technical details you notice that this house was way ahead of it's time. Also when you see photos of the owner in her house... it is amazing that savoye was conceived almost 100 years ago. And I'll stop here ”˜cause words seem stupid when they try to express such a strong impression.
Villa La Roche was next. I just think that a place like the picture gallery without any pictures is not complete. in the same time some rooms were closed for visitors. Anyway, again, walking through it and with a little effort picturing how it would be to live in it... no more words.
this is just a curiosity of mine. does anyone read other blogs except for the last 3 ones posted in the discussions?
