Just returned from 2 weeks cycling in France from Paris to Marseilles to visit some of Corb’s famous projects. Having never really been educated about his work aside from tutors mentioning them in passing it was fascinating to see them in the flesh before reading much about them, presumably the opposite for most making the pilgrimage to his projects. My knowledge extended as far as his 5 points and the Villa Savoye  which demonstrated them and also the modular system of proportioning. As part of this recession busting holiday/field trip we also visited the Molitor apartments he lived in and designed, Firminy, Ronchamp, La Tourette and the Unite in Marseilles. We are currently editing some film footage which will make a short about the trip.
