The main target of the project is to describe reach history of the building by simple drawing, which visually divides it into 5 stages such as:

1. Origin:

In this part of the project, we delve into the very inception of the idea of constructing the famous Villa Savoye. Utilizing Le Corbusier’s five principles – pilotis, flat roof terrace, free plan, horizontal windows, and free facade treatment – we create a concept of a unique architectural masterpiece, combining functionality and aesthetics.


At this stage, the concept laid down in the inception of the project is realized. Every architectural element is brought to life using advanced construction technologies and materials to create not only a beautiful but also a durable structure.

3. Breath:

The operational stage of Villa Savoye – the time when the building comes alive and begins to serve its occupants. Here we consider how the building adapts to the needs of its inhabitants, how its maintenance and upkeep are ensured to preserve its original beauty and functionality.

4. Eclipse:

The time of war left its mark on Villa Savoye. During this period, the building was abandoned, lost its original integrity, and became a place of suffering. This period serves as a reminder of how war can destroy not only material possessions but also cultural heritage.

5. Renaissance:

The restoration and reconstruction of Villa Savoye symbolize the revival of its significance and cultural heritage. The restoration project transforms the abandoned building into a museum, restoring its former glory and making it accessible for public admiration and education.

Jury Comments

By drawing the Villa Savoye as a montage, the entry effectively captures the dynamic interplay between its form, function, and the historical context in which it exists. The entry skillfully weaves various elements of the villa’s story, from its conception to its present-day significance, creating a compelling visual narrative that unfolds before the viewer’s eyes. Well done!

Interesting vision that brings together historical times from conception to possible building future, great organization of graphic narrative. | Mariela Mezalira
