Mass produced houses using the Dom-ino system. Note the Baroque palace plan form.

From this time on the "house-palace" theme came to be developed in Le Corbusier's work at two didderent scales, each with related by separate socio-cultural connotations. The first was the free standing, individual bourgeois villa of Palladian precedent, as exemplified in Le Corbusier's masterly houses of the late 1920's; the second was the collective dwelling, conceived as a baroque palace that was capable of evoking, through the set-back formation of its plan, the ideological connotations of the Utopian Cocialist palace or phalanstery.
