Le Corbusier (Dalhousie University)
The School of Architecture, Faculty of Architecture and Planning at Dalhousie University has contributed approximately 250 images of architecture by Le Corbusier to the Artstor Digital Library.
The images have been selected from a collection of slides donated to Dalhousie University by the family of Paul Jobin, which is housed in the School of Architecture's Slide Library. During the 1970s, Jobin, an architectural draftsman, photographed numerous buildings designed by the Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier (Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris, 1887-1965), a major figure in the development of modern architecture. The collection includes documentation of a number of sites in France, including: Ozenfant House and Studio, Paris; Villa La Roche-Jeanneret, Paris; Villa Cook, Boulogne; Palais du Peuple, Paris; Cité de Refuge, Paris; Pavillon Suisse, Cité Universitaire, Paris; Unité d'Habitation, Marseilles; Maisons Jaoul, Neuilly-sur-Seine; Couvent Sainte Marie de la Tourette, Eveux; Maison du Brésil, Cité Universitaire, Paris; Unité d'Habitation, Firminy; Maison de la Culture, Firminy; and Municipal Pool, Firminy.
