  3. 3. Timeline Born Switzerland on October 6,1887. Designed his first house, in 1907, at age 20. Le Corbusier traveled through central Europe and the Mediterranean, His travels included apprenticeships with various architects, Auguste Perret and Peter Behrens. In 1917, he moved to Paris and assumed the pseudonym Le Corbusier concrete structures under government contracts.
  4. 4. In 1918, Le Corbusier met Cubist painter Amédée Ozenfant, who encouraged Le Corbusier to paint. pair published the book Après le cubisme(After Cubism), an anti-cubism manifesto, and established a new artistic movement called purism. In 1923, Le Corbusier published Versune Architecture (Toward a New Architecture). In 1922, he proposed a new architecture that would satisfy the demands of industry, hence functionalism, and the abiding concerns of architectural form. His proposals included his first city plan, the Contemporary City, and two housing types that were the basis for much of his architecture throughout his life: the Maison Monol and, more famously, the Maison Citrohan.
  5. 5. In 1925-1926, he built a workers’ city of 40 houses in the style of the Citrohan house at Pessac, near Bordeaux. In the 1930s, Le Corbusier reformulated his theories on urbanism, publishing them in La Ville radieuse (The Radiant City) in 1935.

  7. 7. Le Corbusier’s Five Points of Architecture • Pilotis – Replacement of supporting walls by a grid of reinforced concrete columns that bears the structural load is the basis of the new aesthetic. • The free designing of the ground plan—the absence of supporting walls—means the house is unrestrained in its internal use. • The free design of the facade—separating the exterior of the building from its structural function—sets the façade free from structural constraints. • The horizontal window, which cuts the façade along its entire length, lights rooms equally. • Roof Gardens on a flat roof can serve a domestic purpose while providing essential protection to the concrete roof.

  13. 13. Materials • Bricks, concrete, stone, glass and natural wood. • Exterior gives the concrete view of the structure and rustic red brick materials are combined with unpainted wood and glass. • In the interior finishes of the same materials with brightly painted walls, vaulted brick ceilings and floors unpolished overlap. • The exterior walls are unplastered on the outside, and on the inside plastered to avoid condensation.

  14. 14. BRUTALISM • Was designed in 1951 and built between 1954 and 1956. • The brutalist stage of Le Corbusier began after the end of World War II and was characterized by the use of reinforced concrete without paint or decorate. • L.C. left the gray concrete exposed and strict each of the five points for a new architecture compliance.

  16. 16. Contribution • Quality of light in interior spaces. • Fenestration. • Opening in wall structure. • Drama and subtlety. • Serenity & Emotional content. • Changing of light throughout the day adds to the sense of animation.
