Le Corbusier Building : La Clarté

Le Corbusier Building : La Clarté

The La Clarté building is one of the more surprising projects of Swiss architect Le Corbusier.
It is a masterpiece by one of the 20th century’s most famous architects, protected as a historic monument.

Le Corbusier is the architect of the building situated on Rue St Laurent. His largest urban project was the creation of the entire town of Chandigarh in India. In 1932, Le Corbusier and a Genevan metal-smith industrialist built La Clarté, a structure comprising a steel frame, glass and slabs. Light shows through glass bricks. The construction material is both rigid and fragile. La Clarté is also called the ‘House of Glass’. The building, located in the Eaux-Vives district, represents a milestone in modern architecture. It has 48 apartments and offices.
