He invented comfort and space in the cells of his Unites d'habitation, radiant cities that are often deprecated but rarely equaled. He turned concrete into a noble material. He built a chapel as moving as a cathedral, a hut beyond perfection, and even an entire city in Northern India. A pragmatic and visionary architect, Le Corbusier shook up our era with his vast and ever changing body of work, which still permeates our everyday life. An art critic and journalist.
