The series leads through the „Wohnmaschine“ ("housing machine") by Le Corbusier, which was built in 1956-58 on the occasion of the International Building Exhibition in Berlin. Besides Marseille and Nantes, the "Unité d'habitation, Type Berlin" is the third residential complex of that kind. A 17-storey high-rise building standing on reinforced-concrete stanchions with 557 apartments, which are accessible via nine centrally located "streets". Corbusier himself describes his residential housing design with the following quote:
In this vertical village of 2,000 inhabitants you don't see your neighbor you don't hear your neighbor we're a family placed 'in the conditions of nature'
