Pavillon Le Corbusier Overview

Situated on the Zurichsee Lakeshore, Pavillon Le Corbusier is an architectural marvel and a Swiss art museum dedicated to renowned Swiss architect Le Corbusier. Corbusier wanted to showcase his best works in a building that he personally loved and since there was nothing around, he worked on designing the Pavillon himself in the 1960s.

Apart from the fact that it was the last structure he designed, what stands out is that the Pavillon was created with only steel and glass held together with 22,000 bolts, especially in an era when cement was a prime element of construction. Explore this architectural marvel as part of your Switzerland package, marvelling at the innovative use of materials and experiencing the unique blend of historical significance and modern design that defines this captivating structure.

The museum houses Corbusier’s best sculptures, paintings, designs and also his writings. It is also popular for being one of the most vibrant buildings along Lake Zurich and is testimony to Le Corbusier’s vision of modern contemporary architecture.
