reading response 12: corbu+bouroullec

last summer i visited a bouroullec design exhibit in apartment 50 of corbusier's well known unite d'habitation complex located in la cite radieuse of marseille, france.  this was an incredible opportunity to experience a corbusier apartment first hand-- and witness how people currently live in his buildings.  i was happy to see that unite d'habitation is still a very vibrant and diverse place where immigrants, students, teachers and design enthusiasts live side by side.
