Ozenfant House & Studio by Le Corbusier, Paris France 1922
The house and studio in Paris for Le Corbusier’s friend the painter Ozenfant is an early example of ‘minimal’ architecture, a prototype of the Domino house and a manifestation of some of the principles which Le Corbusier was to set out in his famous ‘five points.’ It possessed a geometrical clarity inside and out which has since been lost with the elimination of the north-light roof and its replacement by a flat one.

A unique perspective of Parisian architecture from up in the clouds. The photographer says, “Sometimes, walking through Paris, I feel like I am floating… Paris seems to always exist under a thick blanket of grey clouds. Sometimes, when the sky opens up, it is really incredible.”
