"Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of volumes brought together in light."
- Le Corbusier

Born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, Le Corbusier (1887-1965) adopted his famous pseudonym after publishing his ideas in the review L`Esprit Nouveau in 1920. The few buildings he was able to design during the 1920s, when he also spent much of his time painting and writing, brought him to the forefront of modern architecture, though it wasn`t until after World War II that his epoch-making buildings were constructed, such as the Unité d`Habitation in Marseilles and the Church of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp.
  • "I always find artists who provoke and cause scandal the most interesting to read about. Well, Le Corbusier certainly did that."

    — France Magazine, London
