Palais des Congrès: John Hejduk Comparison

12.1 House 10: Museum, 1963-67. John Hejduk. Axonometric.
12.2 House 10: Museum, 1963-67. John Hejduk. Plan
12.3 Palais des Congrès, 1964. Le Corbusier. Axonometric of Level and Level 3a, columns, escalator and amorphous elements.
12.4 Wall House 2, 1972-75. John Hejduk. Axonometric of the 'individual' rooms.

John Hejduk's House 10: Museum and Wall House 2 both show the influence of Le Corbusier's Palais des Congrès. The regular column grid combined with amorphous walls and 'rooms' is an inherent vocabulary to all three buildings, and it seems safe to say that this is a vocabulary unique to the decade between 1960 and 1975.
