La Maison au Bord de L’Eau was designed in 1934 by architect, designer, planner and photographer Charlotte Perriand. For a Design Miami 2013 satellite exhibition, Louis Vuitton has built the house, which has proven “contemporary in light of the advancements in wooden architecture.” The house was originally conceived for a design contest held by L’architecture d’aujourd’hui magazine. It’s aim was to be a simple, economical form of holidaying for the mass market. It won second prize, so was never built – until now, eight decades later.
