About Le Corbusier
Swiss born Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, better known as Le Corbusier (French: [l? k??byzje]; October 6, 1887 – August 27, 1965), was an architect, designer, urbanist, and writer, famous for being one of the pioneers of what is now called modern architecture. He was born in Switzerland and became a French citizen in 1930. His career spanned five decades, with his buildings constructed throughout Europe, India and America.
He was a pioneer in studies of modern high design and was dedicated to providing better living conditions for the residents of crowded cities. In his early thirties, he opened his legendary architecture studio in Paris. In addition to becoming immensely famous as an architect, Le Corbusier was also an urban planner, painter, sculptor and writer. His collaborations with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret and with Charlotte Perriand were decisive. Together, they presented a revolutionary one-room studio apartment at the Salon d’Automne in Paris in 1929, with furniture pieces which embodied the modernist spirit. They were conceived as instruments suitable for furnishing spaces built for the modern man, which explains why Le Corbusier loved to speak of “équipement.” These furnishings had to be utilitarian, an expression of their function. The new value proposed by the coupling of form and function: the object, stripped of its ornaments, recovers its implacable and intimate sense of beauty, expressing its very nature in the harmony of its new form, simple and essential. The public’s reaction was predictably hostile. But as fate would have it, the legend was awaiting. He was awarded the Frank P. Brown Medal and AIA Gold Medal in 1961.
