Fondation Le Corbusier

« I declare, here and in all eventualities, that I leave everything I possess to an administrative entity, the « Fondation Le Corbusier », or any other appropriate realization destined to become a spiritual entity, that is, a continuation of the endeavour pursued throughout a lifetime. »

Le Corbusier (note, dated 13 January 1960)

Created in 1968, the Fondation Le Corbusier was born out of the architect's desire to avoid the dispersion of his works and archives. Its fundamental mission is to look after the architectural work. It has initiated a program of actions to contribute to the knowledge and dissemination of the plastic, architectural and literary work of Le Corbusier: reception of researchers, publications, exhibitions, symposia.

In the context of this continual process of informing and asserting the value of a major work, 17 buildings by Le Corbusier were listed in 2016 on the World Heritage List by UNESCO for their outstanding contribution to the modern movement. 

The Villa “Le Lac”, owned by the Fondation Le Corbusier, is listed as a part of this transnational serial property.

Within the framework of an agreement between the Association Villa “Le Lac” Le Corbusier, established in 2013, and the Commune of Corseaux, the Fondation Le Corbusier is in charge of the restorations and maintenance of this work by Le Corbusier.
