Villa Savoye is a modernist villa in Poissy, on the outskirts of Paris, France. It was designed by Swiss architects Le Corbusier and his cousin, Pierre Jeanneret, and built between 1928 and 1931 using reinforced concrete.

My latest acquisition! I subscribe to the Atlas Obscura newsletter and one day read about this innovative tape measure from Le Corbusier, the master of modern architecture. I had never heard of this Modulor Rule before and found the article to be a very interesting read. And when it mentioned that Princeton Architectural Press and Fondation Le Corbusier had created a facsimile edition of the Modulor Rule I awaited it’s release in September this year and got my very own copy. Which of course fitted perfectly in the Corner of Curiosities. You can read the article here: www.atlasobscura.com/articles/le-corbusiers-modulor-rule

 

About my Corner of Curiosities: A few years ago I bought a little box with drawers, thinking I would collect a few special bits and pieces in there. I parked this little set on top of my IKEA chest of six drawers which stands in a corner of my apartment. In time, I added more small shelfs, drawers and boxes and began to put curious items on display in all the little nooks and crannies. Quirky little things I mostly find on flea markets, but also get off the net. This corner of my home serves as inpiration, and every once in I while I walk up the IKEA dresser, put my elbows on top and rest my chin in my hands while I let my eyes wander through all these curious things. Moments such as these give spark my imagination and spurs my motivation to doodle in my journals. The collection is’nt all that special, as it’s not very easy finding fairly cheap, quirky and curious things, small enough to fit in the corner. My collection is constantly changing, if I find a new collectible, something else has to go or be moved around - as the corner now more or less is full.

 

Anywho, I thought I’d dedicate a photo album to this Corner of Curiosities, here on Flickr - probably for no other purpose than to tickle my own imagination :)

Great Arthur House is in the Golden Lane Estate in the city of London. I love this tower block with its bright yellow panels and curved hat. According to the English Heritage web site it was designed by the architects Chamberlin, Powell and Bon and inspired by the work of Le Corbusier. It was built in the 1950's. There is a lovely indoor swimming pool on the estate which has recently reopened after being renovated.
