Early mooring site / Louvre Palace shore (1929)

The dome of the Institut de France is in front of it, almost in line with Perth.
The plan was moored at this location from the planning stage, and I was surprised that it was realized.

Where Le Corbusier lived / 20 Rue Jacob (1917-1933)

Le Corbusier lived in an apartment with a salon opened by female writer Natalie Bernay. In 1930, Corbusier married his wife Yvonne and lived there while Kunio Maekawa was in Paris, but Eileen Gray, who designed the E-1027 at the same time, also lived nearby.
