Own and build Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye modernist house in cardboard
Fancy owning an iconic modernist home? Well, if you are prepared to put in a bit of work, you can pick up Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye modernist house for a fraction of the price of the original.
A company called Paper Landmarks sells kits of various iconic builds, all of which are made out of a stiff cardboard. You just buy the pre-cut or printed sets (the latter requiring cutting) and follow the instructions to create it. If you want one, you can secure one online for $25 / $39. Alternatively, the Barbican Art Gallery and Bookends in London are listed as retailers. See the site for retailers in other locations.

Update: You can also buy completed versions on Etsy
