Le Corbusier, a designer, an artist, a pioneer, and a unique personality

Le Corbusier is a French-Swiss architect, designer, painter, urban planner, writer, and international luminary. With 17 of his buildings on the UNESCO World Heritage List, he is known for his profound impact on the 20th century.

Le Corbusier believed that the old, chaotic and dilapidated cities should be demolished and replaced by orderly and rigorously planned metropolises. These should be centred around a central business district filled with glass and steel skyscrapers, occupied by corporate offices and the residences of the rich. Smaller skyscrapers, set in the middle of a vast green space, would radiate outwards, with all the amenities residents might need within easy reach. His ‘Cité Radieuse’ marked a break with the contemporary city by abandoning its class system, with housing now allocated according to family size rather than economic status.
