Villa Vals

Architects CMA and SeARCH were focusing on the question if it would be possible to conceal a house in an Alpine slope while still exploiting the wonderful views and allowing light to enter the building when planing the Villa Vals. They decided to build a central patio into the steep incline to create a large facade with considerable potential for window openings. The viewing angle from the building is slightly inclined, giving a dramatic view of the beautiful mountains on the opposite side of the narrow valley.

照片拍攝於1972年,畫面中可見尚在興建中的圓山大飯店之14層中國宮殿式大廈(1973年10月10日落成),從圓山新廈的角度研判,圖中街景應是位於目前台北市新生北路三段底附近的新生公園一帶,不過隨著中山高速公路、新生公園與新生高架道路的興建,此景已不復存在
