The Architectural Work of Le Corbusier.
An Outstanding Contribution to the Modern Movement.
Subsequently to the decision of the World Heritage Committee to inscribe the Architectural Work of Le Corbusier on the World Heritage List, the Fondation Le Corbusier has been delighted to note that the Oustanding Universal Value of the transcontinental series proposed by seven countries had been acknowledged by UNESCO.

Responding to the challenges of architecture and society in the 20th Century, Le Corbusier’s contribution to the Moderne Movement aimed to instigate a unique forum of ideas at a world level; it facilitated the invention of a new architectural language and the modernization of architectural techniques; it met the social and human needs of modern man.

The Fondation wishes to express its deep gratitude to all those who contributed to the success of the nomination which benefited from a fruitful collaboration: the states parties (Argentina, Belgium, France, Germany, India, Japan and Switzerland), the local communities and organizations which host the buildings, the owners of the buildings, inhabitants and users, and all the experts who were associated to the project.

The preservation of the modern heritage, and more specifically of Le Corbusier’s architectural work is a long term venture. The inscription on the World Heritage List of 17 buildings or sites by Le Corbusier represents a strong encouragement to continue all along Le Corbusier ‘s built work to maintain this living heritage and to hand it down to future generations. It also contributes to the understanding of that complex and fragile legacy and helps its dissemination to the widest audience.
