A HOUSE IS A MACHINE FOR LIVING IN | LE CORBUSIER

Le Corbusier stated in 1927, ‘The house is a machine for living in.’

Design still draws upon Le Corbusier, despite nearly a century passing since these ideas were born.

Corbusier believed in “the mass production spirit. The spirit of constructing mass-production houses.” so does the concept that each house is a machine infer a lack of individuality in favour of faster productivity?

But in the midst of a housing epidemic and high demand within the laboratory of London, it is crucial to protect the individuality of design which makes the fabric of our city so diverse.

Is the machine the house of the future?
