XIV century: first urban development

« Un paesaggio

 Le Corbusier scale-model for transforming San Giobbe in hospital area

An hollow plan by Le Corbusier

  • slaughterhouse structures came out to be obsolete

  • urban planning regulations: use San Giobbe area for hospital
  • Le Corbusier was committed to the plan
  • Le Corbusier project remained on the paper  
    (but a cornerstore for the architecture culture)
