Le Corbusier in Tokyo

The reconstructed Petit Cabanon

At the Mori Art Museum of Tokyo you can visit a show of reconstructed works by Le Corbusier.

The show starts with a full-size, walk-in model of the Paris atelier where Le Corbusier devoted his mornings to painting and sculpture. He only did architecture in the afternoons.

The two biggest attractions are a full-size reproduction of a two-story apartment from his Unité d’Habitation in Marseille, and a reproduction of Le Petit Cabanon, a small wooden hut he built for himself at Cap Martin in the south of France.
