Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier (October 6, 1887 - August 27, 1965) was the pseudonym of Charles Edouard Jeanneret. He was an architect famous for what is now called the International Style[?], along with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius, and Theo van Doesburg[?].

He was born in Switzerland but moved to Paris at the age of 29 and adopted "Le Corbusier", his maternal grandfather's name, as a pseudonym. He usually wore big round black glasses.
