Not a big fan of his works.Most of them look too mathematic and unhuman to me.
Strangely,some buildings like Philips Pavillion and Ronchamp show a total different architectural language,with a more dynamic shape and not so boring or predictable.

Great architect. Some of his works are just spectacular examples of the brutalist style.

Need some buildings like Ville Savoye,Swiss Pavillion or Currutxet House but it's a great collection of his works.

Le Corbusier and Mies, the best of that century.

Chapelle Notre Dame du Haut is spectacular. A genius use of light. You'd never imagine the warm beauty within from an exterior vantage point. It never dawned on me that it was Le Corbusier.

He was horrible. His styles are isolationist; he didn't seem to believe the human was a social animal.

Other than the little chapel one of the worst architects of all time. I pity anyone who has to live in one of his commie block monstrosities.

The guy was a maniac and some of the utter turds he designed and constructed should go down in history as some of the most horrific and ugly structures ever to scar the landscape.

I hope the prick is burning in hell.

Does that adequately desribe my feelings towards him and his grotesque legacy?.

France champions Le Corbusier bid at UNESCO

PARIS, Jan 28, 2008 (AFP) - France is spearheading a seven-country bid to have the work of the modernist architect Le Corbusier added to UNESCO's World Heritage list in 2009, the culture ministry said.

Around 20 major works spanning the architect's five-decade career, located in France, Germany, Argentina, Belgium, India, Japan and Switzerland, will be submitted for addition to the prestigious list.

Considered by some the most influential architect of the 20th century, Le Corbusier was born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret in 1887 in Switzerland, moving to France in 1917 where he changed his name and adopted French citizenship.

Urban planner, painter, sculptor, writer and designer as well as architect, Le Corbusier's legacy includes iconic buildings from central Europe to India, North and South America.

He died in a swimming accident in 1965, at the age of 78.

French Culture Minister Christine Albanel is to sign the application on Wednesday together with the ambassadors to UNESCO of the six other countries backing the bid.

Paris submitted two entries for inclusion in 2007, the 17th century military architecture of the Marquis de Vauban, and the lagoons of New Caledonia, the French territory in the Pacific.
