Le Corbusier Architecture

Design Icon: 10 Influential Works by Le Corbusier

5 of 10

Commissioned as an extension to the residence and clinic for Argentinean surgeon Dr. Pedro Domingo Curutchet, this four-level home is one of only a handful of projects designed by Le Corbusier in North and South America. The Swiss-French architect never visited the site; his only communication with the client was through an exchange of letters. Le Corbusier sent over a set of drawings in 1949 along with a list of recommended architects. Under the direction of Amancio Williams—one of Argentina's most prominent modern architects—it was completed in 1953.
