Also known as the Heidi Weber Pavilion, and completed after Corbusier's death, it is a scarcely open gallery. The building is comprised of two sections: first of all we have two cubes, with sides of enamelled steel panels and glass; second, a massive grey steel umbrella or parasol, which is separate structurally from the two cubes. The cubes are constructed sufficiently to be able to accommodate a variety of uses, from the house that the building was originally designed as, to the gallery it now is and was envisaged as becoming.
