Unite d’ Habitation Berlin

Le Corbusier’s Unité d’Habitation concept was materialised in four other buildings in France with a similar design. The building is constructed in béton brut (rough-cast concrete) and is part of the initial architecture style we know today as brutalism.

The structure was built with on site prefab cast concrete panels and poured ceiling slabs. It is an early example of plattenbau and high-rise residential buildings.

The Modulor system is the base measure of the Unité and Corbusier used not more than 15 Modulor measures to construct the entire structure form.

The original (and most famous) Unite d’Habitation is in Marseilles, France
Dates built: 1946-52
