Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, also known as Le Corbusier, was from Switzerland. He was born on October 6th 1887. He died, unfortunately, on August 27, 1965. He is in the group of architects that are considered to be the founders of modern architecture. Despite being born in Switzerland, he died a citizen of France. He became a naturalized citizen of France in 1930.

However, he wasn’t always an architect. He had many different hats during his life. Those included writing, designing, painting, and urban planning. These various careers allowed him the flexibility to do what he wanted when he wanted. His career in architecture and urban planning, however, was spurred by a different reason. He wanted to improve the living conditions in the cities because he had seen the horrible living conditions in Paris.
