Chosen from the work of Le Corbusier, the 17 sites are a testimonial to the invention of a new architectural language that made a break with the past. They were built over a period of a half-century, in the course of what Le Corbusier described as “patient research”. Included in the list are; the Complexe du Capitole in Chandigarh (India), the Notre Dame du Haut chapel, Ronchamp (France), the House of Dr Curutchet in La Plata (Argentina), Villa Savoye, Poissy, (France) and the Unité d’habitation in Marseille (France). They reflect the solutions that the Modern Movement sought to apply during the 20th century to the challenges of inventing new architectural techniques to respond to the needs of society. These masterpieces of creative genius also attest to the internationalization of architectural practice across the planet. Complete details can be found on the UNESCO web site.
Architectural photographer Richard Pare has photographed the work of the Swiss modernist master, Le Corbusier for decades. Many of his photographs were featured in the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA NY) in its 2013 exhibition and publication, “Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes”. These were also feature in the 2013 Lumière exhibition: Le Corbusier, An even wider selection can be seen on Richard Pare’s Artist Page, along with Pare’s work on early Modernist Architecture in the early years of the former USSR, (Lost Vanguard).
