People looking for things to do in Paris on a warm summer's day could opt for a trip to the innovative and intriguing Villa Savoye.
Designed by Swiss architect Le Corbusier, the Villa Savoye will surprise visitors - the house is situated in the middle of a field, high up, with a roof terrace and horizontal windows.
Many of the features that the design boasts would later become key components of modern architecture.
It encompasses Le Corbusier's "five points" of new architecture: the support of ground level pilotis, a functional roof, a free floor plan, long horizontal windows and freely designed facades.
Unfortunately the house was damaged during the Second World War, but was restored to how it was before.
Le Corbusier referred to this house of the future as his 'machine for living,' and it is well worth a visit for anyone interested in architecture and how it has evolved over the years.
