Despite the fact that the famed Swiss modernist architect Le Corbusier only designed one building in the United States (the Carpenter Center at Harvard), his ideas about urban design manifested themselves quite prolifically through the American landscape throughout the 20th century. While there is no one definitive Web site dealing with this architect whose work is synonymous with modernism, this site provides a number of thematically organized links that will help those seeking for information about Corbu. Thematic sections located here include online 3D models of his very distinctive buildings, his writings, biographical sketches, and visual images. Those persons unfamiliar with the work of Le Corbusier will want to be sure to check out the links related to the Villa Savoye, a home located in a Parisian suburb that was designed by Corbu as a machine a habiter, or a machine for living.
