Le Corbusier's Amazing Vacation Shackitecture

The D+R-coined term shackitecture is defined as modest architecture of grand ambition. Frankly, the Le Corbusier Cabanon is so deliriously magnificent it may stretch the definition of the word, but this grand achievement and personal expression is exactly what shackitecture should be at its most refined. It is impossible to look at without considering how you would live in this inspiringly compact space.

Originally on the Cote D'Azure, a reconstruction of the cabin is on view at the Royal Institute of Architects as part of a broader exhibition of Le Corbusier's work.
