Hitchcock Presents features a soundtrack from a trailer for Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Psycho’ (1960) synched to a roaming video-tour of Le Corbusier’s Maison blanche at La-Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. As the master of suspense details the visit, la Maison blanche takes the leading role and becomes the setting for a thriller. The video brings to the fore the psychological austerity of Le Corbursier’s proto-minimal home, and its hidden Gothic potential: built in 1912 for the architect’s parents, they found it unbearable and left it as soon as they could.
