MANY THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO HAD SUPPORTED THIS PROJECT. (†_†)°
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The main idea of this CUUSOO is to expand the LEGO Architecture line to creation from Europe.

My first proposal is a reproduction of the Villa Savoye built between 1928 and 1931 made of 671 pieces, 20 studs large, 24 studs long and 25 plates hight.

This building is considered by many to be the seminal work of the Swiss-French architect, Le Corbusier. Situated at Poissy, outside of Paris, it is one of the most recognisable architectural presentations of the International Style. It is emblematic of his oeuvre in that it addressed "The Five Points", his basic tenets of a new aesthetic of architecture constructed in reinforced concrete, which are :

--- 1. The pilotis, or ground-level supporting columns, elevate the building from the damp earth allowing the garden to flow beneath.
--- 2. A flat roof terrace reclaims the area of the building site for domestic purposes, including a garden area.
--- 3. The free plan, made possible by the elimination of load-bearing walls, consists of partitions placed where they are needed without regard for those on adjoining levels.
--- 4. Horizontal windows provide even illumination and ventilation.
--- 5. The freely-designed facade, unconstrained by load-bearing considerations, consists of a thin skin of wall and windows.

ル・コルビュジェの5つの原則~サヴォワ邸 Villa Savoye
ル・コルビュジェ(Le Corbusier 1887­-1965)。 建築に興味のある方なら、彼の名を知らぬ者は誰1人いな いであろう、20世紀を代表する偉大な建築家である。
ル・コルビュジェ初期の代表作である この「サヴォワ邸 (Villa Savoye)」は、 保険会社を経営するサヴォワ夫妻が 週末を過ごす為の別荘として 1928~1931年にかけて建築 されたもので、「明るい時間(Heures Claires)」と名付け られていた。
大通りに面した白いフェンスを潜り、生い茂る木立の中を 抜けると、突然、緑の中に真っ白な長方形が現れる。 細いピロティが周囲の緑に限りなく溶け込んでしまってお
り、この住居部分だけがまるで「空中に浮かぶ箱」の様に見えるのである。 このサヴォワ邸は、1927年にル・コルビュジェが表明した「ピロティ(Pilotis)」、「屋上庭 園(Toits - jardins)」、「自由な設計(Plan Libre)」、「自由な平面(Façade Libre)」、そして、 「横長の連続窓(Fenêtre en Longueur)」という近代建築における5つの原則を探求・実現化 したものであり、80年という年月が経過した現在でも、その斬新さは驚くに値する。

You can support this idea for your passion for modern houses or for new parts from LEGO catalog or may be for our poor students in Architecture who always need to remember our old masters. (K_A)°

Archiving Villa Savoye

2012.09.01

First, our compliments to King_Arthur for this beautiful rendition of Villa Savoye done in the style of our LEGO® Architecture line.

Today we have confirmed our latest LEGO Architecture release, #21014 Villa Savoye, and are archiving this LEGO CUUSOO project accordingly. We love your model and it would have been a great story to see this come up via LEGO CUUSOO, however we have been working on our own Villa Savoye independently of this project while actively developing our LEGO Architecture line. Naturally, we could not say anything about our plans until the official set release.

As it typically takes 12-18 months to develop and release a LEGO product, situations like this are  likely where a LEGO CUUSOO project overlaps a product that is in development. The closer a LEGO CUUSOO project is based on an existing LEGO product line, the greater this risk will be. Overlaps of this nature are covered in #7 of the LEGO CUUSOO Guidelines and House Rules.

We naturally recommend avoiding suggesting concepts that have a high potential of overlap.

The LEGO CUUSOO Team


Note: If your idea is selected, the LEGO Group will make the final decision on how your proposed product should be produced, the final design, applicable licenses, production run size, sales channels, etc. Please understand that our comments here do not have an effect on the LEGO Review that will take place if the project reaches 10,000 supporters.
