Le Corbusier turning recombinant
There is the idea of documenting the examples where Le Corbusier reuses past building design projects for new projects. For example, the International Planning Competition for Berlin; the Chandigarh Secretariate at Electronic Calculation Center Olivetti; the Museum of Unlimited Growth; the Maison de l'Homme; the stage set at Palais des Congrès...

Incidentally, every instance of Le Corbusier's Museum for Unlimited Growth is listed within Colomina's "The Endless Museum: Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe" (Log 15) except for the instance within the International Planning Competition for Berlin.

Palais des Congrès à Strasbourg   1964

On the stage of the Palais des Congrès' large auditorium, Le Corbusier placed some free-form changing rooms within a Maison Dom-ino structure. This permanent 3-dimensional backdrop is a paradigm of Le Corbusier's seminal ideas of architecture--it recalls the Maison Dom-ino prototype (1914), Composition Three (1929), and more recently the porter's lodge at La Couvent de la Tourette. Set on a stage, this small structure is a tangible symbol of Le Corbusier's message, and, in some ways, it is also a swan song.
