Le Cabanon in London

Le Corbusier fans should make for London to see his seminal — yet minimal — masterpiece, Le Cabanon (above). The bijoux, 12-foot X 12-foot vacation cabin is on show in the British capital at the Royal Institute of British Architects from March 4 to April 28. The piece, which Le Corbusier boasts “wasted not even a centimeter”, displays the architectural icon’s flair for crafting both exteriors and interiors. Inside its light wooden walls is a suite of furnishings, including a pair of beds, a bookcase and wardrobe.

Le Cabanon is tiny, for sure, but a big look into Le Corbusier’s overall worldview.
