|Discussion||Villa Stein Commentary
"More usually known as the Villa Garches, this building started its life as the Villa de Monzie, according to the the name of the original client, de Monize, who, as Minister of Culture, first invited Le Corbusier to design the Pavillion de l'Espirt before proceeding to commission him with this villa....
"In retrospect, nothing served to tie Le corbusier more firmly to the Humanist tradition of the Renaissance than this villa, realised in 1927, for its from was patently predicated on Palladian types and rythms."
Kenneth Frampton, Modern Architecture 1851-1945, p294.
