inside le corbusier
you remember me saying i took photos at le corbusier's unité d'habitation (or corbusier house) in berlin and didn't know if any of them would come out because i used the wrong shutter speed? well, i got lucky. i used expired film and it was a tad dark (grey skies, again), so the colours are a bit flat, but you know that's how i like them anyway.
so here is the first round, taken inside the lobby of the building. sadly, the building is not open for visitors, the lobby is the only place you can access freely. there is a bit of a photo documentation of the building there, which is rather nice. if however you want to see one of the apartments, you can do so once a year (!) at the day of the open monument in september (the next one being september 12, 2010).
obviously, you can also look at the building from the outside. more about that in my next post.
