Le Corbusier was a French-Swiss architect, designer, and painter who, along with Frank Lloyd Wright, Walter Gropius, and Mies van der Rohe, is considered one of the most influential architects of the 20th century. Credited with pioneering the Modernist architecture, Le Corbusier popularised open-floor style edifices, the extensive use of concrete in urban buildings, as well as several chair and sofa designs. “Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light,” he once explained. “Our eyes are made to see forms in light; light and shade reveal these forms; cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the great primary forms which light reveals to advantage.”

Le Corbusier was born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris in Switzerland and assumed the pseudonym  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, Corbu met Cubist painter Amédée Ozenfant who encouraged him to paint. His architectural education comes through in his later painting as emphasised by clear forms and structures.
