Check In In The Desert, Bunk At Le Corbusier's Flat




    Forget that suite at the W or the Ritz-Carlton: Architecture and design junkies can now stay at stunning vacation rentals by master builders such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier. Boutique Homes specializes in jaw-droppingly modern residences around the globe, where you can book a room in the patinated steel boxes of architect Rick Joy’s Desert Nomad House (shown above) at the foot of the Tucson Mountains for $2,500 per week. Or what about FLW’s cantilevered Palmer House (see second image) in Ann Arbor, MI, starting at $300 a night? For urbanites, you can hang your hat at Le Corbusier's minimalist masterpiece (see final image), a flat in Marseille's famed Cite Radiant (from 630 euros per week).
