Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier, a pioneering architect and urban planner of the 20th century, revolutionized modern architecture with his visionary designs and radical ideas. A proponent of functionalism and the International Style, he sought to create buildings that prioritized functionality, efficiency, and human well-being.

His iconic works, such as the Villa Savoye, Ronchamp Chapel, and Unité d'Habitation, showcase his innovative use of geometric forms, open floor plans, and the integration of nature into urban environments. Beyond architecture, Le Corbusier's influence extended to urban planning and furniture design, leaving an enduring legacy that continues to shape the built environment and inspire architects worldwide.
