LE CORBUSIER ADDED TO WORLD HER­ITAGE LIST

The Pullman Magazine - - Places And People To Love -

He dared new shapes and the bold­est of con­struc­tions; fa­mously white vil­las for pub­lic hous­ing and other stun­ning so­cial and cul­tural ar­chi­tec­ture. Who does not know at least one work by Le Corbusier? Af­ter two failed at­tempts, the vi­sion­ary work of the cel­e­brated ur­ban­istar­chi­tect is from July 2016 the first transcon­ti­nen­tal se­rial prop­erty to be ap­pointed World Hu­man­ity Her­itage by UNESCO. The 17 sites are spread over 7 coun­tries and in­clude the vil­las La Roche and Jean­neret (1923) in Paris, the Weis­senhof Es­tate (1927) in Stuttgart, the Cité Radieuse (1945) in Mar­seille, and the Chandi­garh Capi­tol Com­plex (1952) north of New Delhi. The ap­point­ment at­tests Le Corbusier's ex­cep­tional con­tri­bu­tion to the Mod­ern Move­ment.
