Le Corbusier was a renowned French-Swiss architect, urban planner, painter and theorist of the 20th century. Known for his innovations in the field of architecture and design, he was one of the pioneers of the modernist movement. Le Corbusier believed in the functionality of spaces and the need to adapt them to the needs of modern life. His iconic projects include the Villa Savoye in France and the Chandigarh urban plan in India. In addition to his architectural contributions, he also produced a vast written and graphic work, influencing generations of architects and urban planners around the world.

Le Corbusier had a significant relationship with Brazil, where he influenced several architectural projects. In 1936, he was invited by Lúcio Costa and other Brazilian architects to contribute to the project of the Ministry of Education and Health in Rio de Janeiro. Although he proposed two projects, the main ideas were adapted by the Brazilian team, resulting in a building that incorporates Corbusian concepts such as pilotis, brise-soleil and open plan. Additionally, Le Corbusier participated in the design of the Maison du Brésil in Paris, a residential building for Brazilian students, which opened in 1959. His involvement with Brazilian architects such as Oscar Niemeyer and Lúcio Costa helped shape modernist architecture in the country.

The book “Le Corbusier Dessins”, autographed by Le Corbusier himself, is a piece of interest for collectors and architecture enthusiasts. It offers an intimate look at Le Corbusier's creative process, presenting his drawings and artistic reflections. Having a book signed by such an influential figure is a unique opportunity to own a piece of the history of architectural modernism.
