Avoriaz, the “Saint Tropez de Neige”
Developed in the ’60s by Gerard Bremont with three young French architects clearly inspired by Le Corbusier and perched above a cliff face on the French/Swiss border.
An architectural playground in the mountains - an Extreme Landscape with an Urban Extremescape, if you will. No cars: vehicular access only by skidoo, caterpillar track or horse&cart. Stunning, surprising, exciting.
An angular meditation in red cedar.
