“the theoretical basis of stynen’s work is on the same line with the ideas of le corbusier. his apartment building in wilrijk (1932) was a modest, but well conceived residential unit, long before le corbusier built unité d’habitation in marseille. stynen’s proposal for urban development on the ‘linkeroever’ in antwerp (1932) – a competition that le corbusier also participated in – is totally in line with the ideas of c.i.a.m.”
