Le Corbusier – a unique personality
Le Corbusier (Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, 06.10.1887 – 27.08.1965) is considered as the most important architect of the modern age. He shaped the perceptions of modern architecture and of modernity itself.
When one looks at his life's work one can only be astonished at its abundance. Le Corbusier built many groundbreaking buildings around the world and drew up numerous important urban development plans. He created impressive works of art – with paintings, sculptures, drawings and collages, enamels, tapestries as well as engravings. And he developed timeless furniture icons. Incredibly ahead of time. Based on his incomparable experiences, Le Corbusier developed – as a masterpiece – an eternally valid theory of colour: the Architectural Polychromy. Nowadays the Fondation Le Corbusier in Paris manages the life's work of Le Corbusier.
