61. Marseille. Vue aerienne de Cite Radieuse. Architecte, Le Corbusier
This is the famous Unite d'habitation of Marseille. The roof terrace that you see, is both a hanging garden and a belvedere and it provides a gymnasium, outdoor theater, nursery school, paddling pool etc. This roof is for the dwellers a space of public appearance and is set against the backdrop of distant mountains, evoking the agoras of the antique world.
