‘Things will always go wrong some place, but we can always find alternatives’ – Inspiring Le Corbusier Story


Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, pioneer in sphere of urban planning well known as Le Corbusier was a Swiss-French architect, designer, painter, and a writer. Seventeen of his Architectural Work in seven countries were inscribed in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites as “an Outstanding Contribution to the Modern Movement” . The projects showcased how Modernism was applied to construction.

In one of the instance when the roof of the gymnasium of the Unite d’Habitation at Marseilles was being completed the engineers had expressed their concern that there might be chances of development of some cracks.  He replied to them saying even if God had created there would be cracks and we would paint and cover it up. It was as simple as that. Basically there has to be an alternative for every problem or issue. He was an iconic architect who had altered the course of architecture dramatically. 

Just this one instance shows how much we can learn from this iconic architect.

We must be open to change and not limit ourselves .

We must continuously  improvise and innovate new ideas.
