le corbusier kitchen

Today was my father's anniversary. So I went to Villa Savoye to console his spirit who has been my guardian angel.
He was a big fun of Le Corbusier and I inherited his book 'modulor' in Japanese 2nd edition from 1950s.
Apparently the commissioner Mr and Mrs Savoye didn't enjoy the house much because of dumpness and leakage but I myself enjoyed the house. It is very airy in the living room and especially I liked the big kitchen. I happened to get asked to open the big door between the living room and the patio but it was very heavy. We needed 3 people including a strong guy. It is very different from the Ronchamp and am impressed how much he was capable of.
