LE CORBUSIER born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris in 1887 in Switzerland was an architect designer urbanist and writer famous for being one of the pioneers of what is now called modern architecture. 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. In 1918 Le Corbusier met the Cubist painter Amde Ozenfant. Rejecting Cubism as irrational and romantic the pair jointly published their manifesto Apres le Cubisme and established a new artistic movement Purism. They established the Purist journal 'L'Esprit nouveau'. It was Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye (1929 1931) that most succinctly summed up his five points of architecture that he had elucidated in 'L'Esprit Nouveau' and his book 'Vers une architecture'. By 1927 Le Corbusier was among the world's leading practitioners of the New Architecture. He died in 1965 in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin France.
