Photographer's Note

The corner (high) market Brauhauban. Renovated there some time with the addition of plants in pots and wall and with shadings terracotta.
After twenty five years of research, a new element (although petrol traditional) may be able to register definitively in architecture steel cement and glass: the shadings which indeed introduced a new technique : Control of the sun (light and glare).
This is the description that Le Corbusier gives shadings in 1948. Though present in the work of the architect in the early 30s, the brise soleil is theorized from 1946, when Le Corbusier began the project Marseille.
