Early works by great architects

Let's see some examples of how great architects have evolved in style. For instance:

Le Corbusier

-http://divisare.com/projects/199414-Le-Corbusier-Villa-Favre-Jacot

- Galinsky

(yes, I know this looks Prairie-style but he kept it in Towards a New Architecture so he obviously wasn't too embarrassed)

Where Corbu got his inspiration

Mies

- NCModernist Houses

Gropius

-Wiki

Early Niemeyer is awesome... HIs work before Brasília, sometimes forgotten, shows him at his best.

The Capanema Palace was built as the Ministry of Education and Health building, in Rio de Janeiro, not São Paulo. In fact Lucio Costa was in charge of the design, and called in many architects including Niemeyer. Le COrbusier drew the first sketches, but the Brazilians modified it significantly to the final design. And Oscar was the one who defined the overall layout, since Lucio finally left him in charge after rhe went on to design the Missoes Museum.
