These 40 models have been selected from well over 100." Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, better known as Le Corbusier (1887-1965), was born in Switzerland and is considered to be one of the greatest architects and designers of the 20th century. He also was a painter, writer, urban planner and theorist. His work inspired later avant-garde architectural experiments throughout the world.
