Fondation Le Corbusier (Le Corbusier Foundation)

Fondation Le Corbusier (Le Corbusier Foundation) Review

Maison La Roche is a must-see for architecture and design lovers. Built as a private residence in 1923, it’s a stellar example of Swiss architect Le Corbusier's innovative construction techniques based on geometric forms, recherché color schemes, and a visionary use of iron and concrete. The sloping ramp that replaces the traditional staircase is one of the most eye-catching features. Hour-long English tours are available at 2 pm every Tuesday and must be reserved online.
