Le Corbusier‘s iconic Villa Savoye has just been added to LEGO’s famed Architecture Landmark Series! The structure, which lies on the outskirts of Paris, France, is a quintessential example of the International style, and perfectly illustrates Corbu’s “5-Points” — an architectural marker that still resonates within modern design today. The real-life home was originally designed as a private country house in 1931, and it quickly became one of the most influential buildings of the 20th century. In fact, tours of the perfectly preserved home are still given today to eager architecture students and enthusiasts looking to see Corbu’s work first hand. The 660 piece set will officially launch tomorrow (for $69.99), and will come with a booklet that details the design and history of the home.
