In these diagrams. I explained how Le Corbusier applied Golden Section in Villa Savoye. The second diagram represent the circulation in Villa Savoye. The green area in the third diagram is a continuting wall in the house.

DrawingsThen I related the idea of hygiene to the house since in Le Corbusier's own architecture of the 1920s, the imagery of hygiene was as important as that of machine. I use blue to represent the sense of hygiene and dirt to show the triumph of running water. The lighter blue represents hygiene and the dark one represents dirt.


I tried to use some messy line to represent the sense of dirt while keep another part as clean and empty to determined hygiene.
