In honour of Le Corbusier
Heidi Weber was left alone to master the immense task of finalising Le Corbusier's last construction. After several weeks of anguish and doubts about continuing the works, she decided to complete the museum in honour of Le Corbusier.
July 1967, 15th/16th – Inauguration
On July 15th and 16th 1967, two years after the artist’s death, Heidi Weber opened Le Corbusier’s last complete work in the presence of many of Le Corbusier’s friends who had travelled from all over the world to be present at this symbolic inauguration.
A complete work of art for the public
This building is an icon of modern construction. It is the only construction that Le Corbusier designed in steel and glass.
The work constitutes a fluid transition from architecture to sculpture. With the construction of the museum Heidi Weber manages to integrate all disciplines of Le Corbusier‘s universal genius. Initiated and realized by the young and pioneering woman. The Heidi Weber Haus – Centre Le Corbusier was visited during its first year by over 45‘000 visitors from all over the world.
