Designer Spotlight: Le Corbusier

Swiss-born architect Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, known as Le Corbusier, is one of the most venerated figures in the 20th-century canon. His oeuvre spans furniture, "machines for living," and master plans—some celebrated, some derided, but all significant to the modern world. Discover some of Corbu's work in the following slideshow.

Nestled in a leafy alleyway in Paris's famous 16th arrondissement, Villa La Roche is a prime reflection of modernist architecture in France. Built between 1923 and 1925 by Le Corbusier, it stands as an experiment in linking two distinct programs, intertwining both art gallery and home.
