Pavillon Le Corbusier in Zürich, Switzerland

The Pavillon Le Corbusier in Zürich (Switzerland) is the last building designed by the Swiss architect Le Corbusier and his only building made of steel and glass. The Pavillon Le Corbusier exists thanks to the lifelong commitment of the interior designer, gallery owner and patron Heidi Weber. She convinced Le Corbusier to design this museum building in 1960, financed its construction, and brought the project to completion. The pavilion opened on 15 July 1967 as the Centre Le Corbusier – Heidi Weber Museum. Heidi Weber directed and curated the museum for 50 years. During this period, she organized numerous exhibitions to convey Le Corbusier’s work and ideas as a total work of art to a broad public. Since 2019, and after extensive renovation, the listed Pavillon Le Corbusier is operated by the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich on behalf of the City of Zurich. This video provides you with a walk-through of the building and an interview with the Head of Pavillon Le Corbusier, Simon Marius Zehnder.
