Le Corbusier’s Maison Week-end evokes a kind of eternal return in which neither the archaic nor the modern predominate… it evokes a going-to-ground, as though it was a kind of archaeological manifestation, a troglodyte “objet trouvé” that while contaminated by modern technique remains irredeemably archaic.
