Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier was born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris in Switzerland on October 6, 1887. In 1917, he moved to Paris and assumed the pseudonym Le Corbusier. In his architecture, he chiefly built with steel and reinforced concrete and worked with the elemental geometric forms. Le Corbusier’s painting emphasized clear forms and structures, which corresponded to his architecture.
