Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, also known as Le Corbusier, was born in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Swisserland and died in 1965, in France, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, Côte d’Azur.
In the beginning of his career, his works were met with resistance due to their ‘revolutionary’ nature and his radical vision, acquired following his ‘purist’ experiments; however, in time, he earned much-deserved recognition and is still regarded with the same admiration. His message is till being assimilated by countless professionals in the field. He made himself known through his rational systems of planning, through extremely simple modules and forms, based on functional logics.
In his activity as an urban planner, architect and designer, he continuously developed his research methods, reaching the polar opposite: a rich artistic expression.
