Le Corbusier, La Chaux-de-Fonds

"I’d never have imagined that Le Corbusier had left such a mark on La Chaux-de-Fonds’ cultural heritage. And yet, on my stroll through the streets of Charles-Edouard Jeanneret‘s home town, I quickly became fascinated by the game of discovering the secrets of his youth. As I passed by the house where he was born, I couldn’t help being moved by the thought of the boy who had as yet no inkling of the exceptional future that awaited him. In the course of the tour, I learned about the major stages in this architect’s life, the site of his first practice and the construction of the remarkable Villa Turque, not forgetting the “Maison blanche”, which he had built for his parents."
