The Cabanon de vacances is a vacation home designed and built by noted architect Le Corbusier in 1951.[1] It is the only place the architect Le Corbusier built for himself which he used for vacation. In July 2016, the home and several other works by Le Corbusier were inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.[2]

Design and Construction[edit]

Le Corbusier loved his summer home for its location. He drowned in the Mediterranean while staying at his beloved cabin.[3]
