A Radiant Life

I’ve found a link to A Radiant Life on facebook profile of one of my architect friends. Whoever enjoys modernism and Le Corbusier’s aesthetic will also enjoy this short movie by Meryll Hardt.

Watch entire movie here.

Nineteen-fifty two, The Radiant City of Marseille receives its first occupants, eighty civil servants with war compensation, coming from the four corners of France. Some are led by the promise of Le Corbusier’s ideals. Upon arrival, a couple experience the location, facilities, and space allotted to them. They each respond to the new habitat. Its uniqueness, its details. Their bodies question its spatial radicalism. —Le Fresnoy
