Corbu was a pioneer and leader of modern architecture. The largely self-taught architect was also an accomplished painter and designer. Le Corbusier art emphasises clear forms and structures, corresponding to his architecture, which is based on elemental geometric forms. In 1943 he applied a similar interdisciplinary approach to developing “Modulor”, a system of proportion based on the male figure and the Golden Ratio, used to determine the proportions of units in architecture and technology. It is also the basis of his work in furniture design. He placed systems of harmony and proportion at the centre of his design philosophy.




Le Corbusier was born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris in Switzerland and assumed the pseudonym Le Corbusier when he moved to Paris in 1917. He was an architect who belonged to the first generation of the International School of Architecture and his work was chiefly built with steel and reinforced concrete and worked with elemental geometric forms. In 1918, Le Corbusier met Cubist painter Amédée Ozenfant who encouraged him to paint. His architectural education comes through in his later painting as emphasized by clear forms and structures. In the 1935, Le Corbusier reformulated his theories on urbanism and published them in La Ville Radieuse.
