Centre Le Corbusier
The final work of the renowned Swiss architect who pioneered
modernism and laid the foundation for Bauhaus, the Centre Le
Corbusier in Zurichhorn Park is the epitome of modern design. A
conglomeration of his life's work, the Centre Le Corbusier and
Heidi Weber Museum unify Le Corbusier's architecture, paintings,
furniture, sculpture and writings, all in one space. Created in the
1960s, the contemporary building strong references to Mondrian and
is a jumble of cubic structures made of coloured panels, glass and
steel, protected by a detached angular roof. Initially designed as
a private house, the many spaces of the Centre Le Corbusier have
fared well as an exhibition and learning centre. On your way to
this illuminating masterpiece, take a stroll alongside the Limmat
River in picturesque Zurichhorn Park and keep a look out for the
sculptures of Jean Tinguely and Henry Moore.
