Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris, better known by the pseudonym Le Corbusier (1887–1965), is considered the most important architect of the modern age. His works still have a considerable influence on architecture and desi- gn today. He designed many buildings and drew up numerous urban development plans throughout the world and today the majority of his architecture has been recognised by Unesco as World Heritage. Le Corbusier was an all- round artist, producing a large number of artworks such as paintings, sculptures, drawings and collages, enamels, tapestries, engravings and furniture, all with the same unmistakable design and which have become real icons. The colour schemes of his buildings and design objects were just as important to Le Corbusier as the ground plan and shape. Fascinated by the balanced colours he found in nature, Le Corbusier based his “Architectural Polychromy” on a structured and artistic choice of pigments.
