    Born in the small Swiss city of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris-better known by his pseudonym Le Corbusier -is widely regarded as the most important architect of the 20th century. As a gifted architect, provocative writer, divisive urban planner, talented painter, and unparalleled polemicist, Le Corbusier was able to influence some of the world's most powerful figures, leaving an indelible mark on architecture that can be seen in almost any city worldwide.
