Le Corbusier, a visionary architect, furniture designer and hard worker that believed that form should follow function. This focus on utilitarian design became his leitmotiv, his obsession. He was also the father of modern urban residence and habitat concepts. His career spanned five decades, with his buildings constructed throughout Europe, India, Japan 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.
Around 1942, he formulated his Modulor" theory, a system of proportion based on the Golden Mean, which he used in his large-scale urban planning projects. Intended to facilitate architecture on a human scale, the Modulor remains one of his most controversial approaches to architecture.
