Le Corbusier’s Immeuble Molitor in Paris

Le Corbusier (born Charles-Édouard Jeanneret) and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret designed and built an eight stories high apartment block in the Boulogne-sur-Seine quarters in Paris. The “Immeuble Molitor” flat was realized between 1931 and 1934, it was the first ever residence with an entirely glass front. Le Corbusier lived and worked in the penthouse apartment/studio until he passed away in 1965.
