Foundation Le Corbusier

Anxious to avoid the breaking up of his studies, plans and some of his visual work, Le Corbusier had, before his ddeath, laid the groundwork for a grougwork for a foundation to which he bequeathed all his property.

Officialy created by a decree of 31 July 1968, the Foundation Le Corbusier was set up in Villas Jeanneret and La Roche, at 8-10 Square du Docteur Blanche in Paris (16th arrondissement).

The goals of the Foundation, as laid down in its statutes, are :

-
"to receive, acquire, restore, preserve and make known to the public by all appropriate means (exhibitions, publications, lectures, colloquia, films, etc) the original works, notes, manuscripts, documents, property and various objects, especially those handed over, bequeathed or transferred by Le Corbusier, the Association pour la Fondation Le Corbusier, or by third parties, having an interest for the knowledge and dissemination of ideas of Le Corbusier and his architectural, visual and literary works;

-
to maintain and manage for this purpose the house know as the àVilla La Rocheà, located in Paris 16e, at 10 Square du Docteur Blanche, handed over to it by the association pour la Fondation Le Corbusier, which in turn had received it for the same purpose by its Honorary President, Raoul La Roche, who died on 15 June 1965, and all buildings which it may acquire or which may be placed at its disposal;

-
to encourage research by all appropriate means, in the spirit defined by the written and constructed work of Le Corbusier;

-
in general, to take any action in keeping with the above-mentioned objectives, provided they are of a disinterested nature".
