Re: LC 2 (addendum)
In Oeuvre Complete vol 7, p. 153, in the section on the Palais des Congrès, there is a curious reference to one of the peripheral buildings to the Palais--6. Hotel 226x226 sur pilotis de 5 m. The 226x226 dimension is the same one used when describing the metal "erector set" system of the Maison l'Homme. I've since always wondered if at that point Le Corbusier was considering having the metal system of "boxes" also raised on pilotis.
