Title in french : Cité Radieuse - Le Corbusier

Type : architecture

City : Marseille

The Radiant City of Marseille is one of the five housing units built by Le Corbusier, a major architect of the twentieth century.

This high-rise building houses not only flats (now very popular), but also a school, an internal street with shops (bakery, hotel, gourmet restaurant, specialized library, etc..) and a rooftop terrace with public facilities (playground, gymnasium, running track, children's pool, outdoor auditorium).

The street as well as the rooftop terrace are open to the public and are an interesting visit to understand why a building of the 50s did not end as a dilapidated tower good enough for destruction.
