Design inspired by Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier (Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris) was a Swiss-French architect who is credited as one of the most influential architects of the 20th century. He changed the face of urban architecture by moving it into the new technological era and perpetuated the idea that architecture can serve utilitarian and utopic purposes. His style was driven by his desire to provide better and more practical living conditions for residents of crowded cities.
During his career, he constructed buildings throughout Europe, India, and America, and was well regarded for his talents around the world. He was also an accomplished painter and devoted to various other art forms.
The name Le Corbusier was adopted by him in 1920, after a growing dissatisfaction with the Cubist movement.
Considered to be the master of modern architecture, Le Corbusier has only been matched by Frank Lloyd Wright. He was a founding member of the Congrès International d’Architecture Moderne (CIAM) and is recognized to have been hugely influential in urban planning. His plans and vision will go down as some of the most important in architectural history.
