Give us plans; show us plans; explain those plan to us.
Unite us […]. If you show us such plans and explain them to us,
the old dichotomy between “haves” and despairing “haves-nots” will disappear.
— Le Corbusier, "Spectacle de la vie moderne," Plans 13 (March 1932
With this (re)construction of a composite model of Le Corbusier’s Plan Obus, we have taken the architect’s initial Plan Obus A as main point of departure. Formulating his vision of a new urban fabric, the city undulates on a territorial scale, set into the topography of the Mediterranean coastline, sequestered between architecture and urbanism as machine d’habitation.
