In this large-format book, photographer Yukio Futagawa recounts his pilgrimage to Le Corbusiers modernist villa in Ahmedabad, India, built between 1951-56. A symbol of the famed architects domestic architecture, the private residence integrates traditional features of local design, such as the double-height living room on the ground level, with key aspects like sun, wind and landscaping. The raw concrete form frames the open character of its interior spaces and the overall plan, a five-level cube divided by beams and slabs. In a lovingly photographed and recounted experience, Futagawa makes a tribute to the house like none other.
