The Unite d’Habitation in Marseille was completed in 1952. It was the first large-scale project of legendary architect Le Corbusier.

It is a striking beton-brut concrete brutalist building. Its 18 floors were designed to house 1600 residents in 337 apartments with two shopping streets, a hotel and a roof terrace.

Le Corbusier’s revolutionary “vertical garden-town” design formed the basis for five similar sites across Europe. Its significance to the world of architecture was recognised by UNESCO when it added it to its list of World Heritage Sites in 2016 and is now partially open to the public.
