Unite D'Habitation Firminy-Vert

The final Unite D'Habitation, Firminy-Vert, is located in the region of Loire, France. It was completed in 1968, after Le Corbusier's death. It's hilltop location makes for great views from every unit, similarly to Petit Cabanon. 

All of the Unite D'Habitations posses some form of a connection to nature, as well as a focus on creating views. In this way, the influence of Petit Cabanon is evident in Le Corbuser's later works.
