Le Corbusier is one of the greatest architects of the 20th century who built iconic buildings in France, Japan, and India. After the rampage of the Second World War, the cities of Europe and Japan required major renovations. Le Corbusier was a Swiss-born French architect who designed cities, built museums, etc., in a style we now call modern architecture.
Even though he died in 1965 at the age of 77, his works remain standing, inspiring the world to this day. Did you know seventeen of his works are included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site list? One such work of him in Japan is the modern building of the National Museum of Western Art (NMWA; 国立西洋美術館) in Tokyo (東京).
