Spotlight on: Villa Sarabhai by Le Corbusier
Villa Sarabhai is the house that Le Corbusier completed for Madame Manorama in Ahmedabad, India, in 1955.
The architect’s technical response to the climatic conditions of India is brilliant in multiple ways, for example the roof is covered with earth to become a garden with a lawn and charming flowers.
However, a particularly beautiful detail is its external slide and stair combination. Made of concrete as a single entity, the slide goes from the first floor terrace straight into the swimming pool while the stair is an extracted zigzag to its side. Find more pictures here.
