Villa Savoye is a modernist villa designed by Le Corbusier, and built between 1928 and 1931 using reinforced concrete. A manifesto of Le Corbusier's "five points" of new architecture, the villa is representative of the bases of modern architecture, and is one of the most easily recognizable and renowned examples of the International style.
The house was originally built as a country retreat on behest of the Savoye family. It was designated as an official French historical monument in 1965 (a rare occurrence, as Le Corbusier was still living at the time). In July 2016, the house and several other works by Le Corbusier were inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
