Maison Guiette

Antwerp, Belgium

Maison Guiette also known as Les Peupliers, is a house in Antwerp designed by Le Corbusier in 1926 and built in 1927. It was the studio and living quarters of René Guiette, a painter and art critic. One of the Franco-Swiss architect's lesser-known works, it is an early example of the International Style.

In July 2016, the house and several other works by Le Corbusier were inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Currently (2022) is being renovated, not much to see...

I came to see Le Corbusier's work, and it was very disappointing that I couldn't see it properly because it was currently undergoing external repairs. However, it was a different experience to be able to see the materials of Corbusier's early works naked.

Interesting home for those who like modernist architecture. In the summer the house is completely covered by ivy plants. Therefore, to be able to see them really well, it is best to look outside the green seasons

Nice design from Le Corbusier.

Kristiansten Fortress

Kristiansten Fortress was built to protect the city against attack from the east. Construction was finished in 1685. General Johan Caspar von Cicignon, who was chief inspector of kuks fortifications, was responsible for the new town plan of Trondheim after the great fire of 18 April 1681. He also made the plans for the construction of Kristiansten Fortress.

The fortress was built during the period from 1682 to 1684 and strengthened to a complete defence fortification in 1691 by building an advanced post Kristiandsands bastion in the east and in 1695 with the now vanished Møllenberg skanse by the river Nidelven. These fortifications were encircled by a continuous palisade and thereby connected to the fortified city. In 1750 the fortress was modernized with new bastions and casemates to protect against mortar artillery.
