Villa le Lac (designated a World Heritage in 2016) was designed and built by Le Corbusier as a Geneva lakeside home for his parents in 1925. Because of its spare arrangement of spaces, he referred to it as a "dwelling machine". Even today it remains the modern prototype of the "small house", fulfilling all the functions of a residence with minimum floor area. This title follows the original edition in which Le Corbusier documented the history of the building, with photographs, sketches and poetic text.
