Pavillon Le Corbusier reopens in Zurich.

The Pavillon Le Corbusier has been reopened in Zurich. It is now the third location of the Museum für Gestaltung.

Reopened is the Pavillon Le Corbusier in Zurich, an important artistic treasure on the eastern shore of the lake.

Completed in 1967, it was thelast construction of the great Swiss-French architect, designer and artist: a building made entirely of glass, steel, colored paint panels and concrete. A significant work because for the artist, concrete was not just a material to be used, but a tool for expression. Le Corbusier created this building on commission from collector Heidi Weber, who made it an exhibition space for her artwork, from oil paintings and drawings to furniture and sculptures.

With this colorful building by the lake, Le Corbusier transformed his vision of synthesis of architecture, life and art. The exhibition pavilion follows the Modulor system, a scale of proportions developed by the artist who was a key figure in the internationalization of architecture and urbanism, globally influencing 20th-century cityscapes: this is one reason why the architect’s works around the world have become part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The building became the third home of the Museum für Gestaltung, the most important institution of design and visual art in Switzerland with its collection of more than 500,000 works.

The Le Corbusier Pavilion is open from May to November. Various temporary exhibitions, events and workshops showcasing Le Corbusier’s works and enormous influence on the art world are also held by the Museum of Visual Arts.
