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.

Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier (Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris) was a Swiss-French architect. By moving urban architecture into the technological era, he perpetuated the idea that architecture can serve utilitarian and utopic purposes. His style arose from his desire to provide better and more practical living conditions for residents of crowded cities. above all, he remains one of the most influential architects of the 20th-century.
During his career, he constructed buildings throughout Europe, India, and America, and he impressed with his talents around the world. He was also an accomplished painter and also devoted to various other art forms. He adopted the name Le Corbusier in 1920, probably 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 has hugely influenced urban planning. Eventually, his plans and vision will go down as some of the most important in architectural history.
