It seems that many visitors to Design Miami have voted the installation (by Louis Vuitton) of the La Maison au Bord de l'Eau, a prefabricated house, which was originally designed in 1934 by Charlotte Perriand as one of the most popular destinations of Design Miami. Unveiled now, this small, modernist construction is situated on the beach, behind The Raleigh Hotel. Perriand designed it for a competition sponsored by L'Architecture d'Aujourd'hui magazine, and it is here that she introduced concepts of a low-cost, eco-friendly, pre-fabricated holiday home, that brought her the first prize. The design, however, had never been realized until now. While furniture by Perriand has become blue chip over the past few years, I think that the house, while very much tells the story of its period, has lost its relevance for 21st century living, thus I find the $2 mm asking price puzzling.
