While still only in his infancy as an architect and budding artist, Charles-Edouard Jeanneret was already at an early age showing a will to achieve ambitious aims and a desire to leave behind him significant traces of his endeavour that would outlast his earthly existence. “Let life be something with a goal and not merely an arrow speeding toward death” he wrote to his parents in 1910.

Having become Le Corbusier, without direct heirs and driven by the fear that his carefully conserved archives and works be scattered after his death, he spent the last fifteen years of his life conceiving and implementing, down to its smallest details, the project of a Foundation that would bear his name.

After two years of restoration, the studio-apartement where Le Corbusier lived from 1934 to 1965 reopens its doors to the public.
