Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier (Charles-Édouard Jeanneret; 1887–1965), Swiss-born, French-trained architect, a founder of the international style. His austere, rectangular designs of the 1920s and 1930s reflect his view of a house as a “machine to live in.” Later influential designs (featuring reinforced concrete) include apartments at Marseilles, a chapel at Ronchamp, and buildings in Chandigarh, India.
