He was pivotal in the creation of the “open floor plan” (which is kind of crazy to think didn’t exist as an idea even a century ago!), but what is perhaps most endearing was his dedication to urban planning – he was so progressive for his time that he was enthralled with looking at ways to sufficiently and beautifully home people as life moved away from the country and to urban centers.

But Le Corbusier didn’t just create pocket-sized apartments, he was thoughtful about space and his works are all pretty astounding and often visually striking. And he was thinking about this before many others, carving out the ideals of modern architecture before it existed!

Ok, so I could go on and on about him, but I should probably let you discover more about his work on your own! Or maybe you’re already a fan, too, and we can crush on his designs together?
