Master in Urban Vision & Architectural Design in partnership with NEMO – September 2019

Introduction

The global lighting company NEMO, which produces some of Le Corbusier’s most iconic creations, is proposing a playful game: to rethink and redesign the lighting of the Le Corbusier masterpiece Villa Savoye.

Brief

This competition gives you the opportunity to deeply understand the complexity of his work by digging beneath the surface of a single project. You are asked to take all the existing data for the Le Corbusier house Villa Savoye and think of an effective way to transform it, considering its planimetry, volumes, and interior design elements in terms of lighting only. You must design this project in relation to a multicultural contemporary environment, considering your country of origin and balancing different, sensitive ecosystems. Using the available materials on Nemo official website (http://nemolighting.com), you will consider how to change the relationships between Villa Savoye’s space and lighting, explaining your choices in a short written or visual manifesto.
