Le Corbusier's projects become UNESCO World Heritage Sites

During the annual session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee, held in Istanbul on 17 July 2016, it was announced that 17 buildings and urban planning projects by the renowned architect Le Corbusier had been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. This is the result of a laborious, collective effort that involved the Fondation Le Corbusier, the seven partner countries where its work can be found (Argentina, Belgium, Germany, India, Japan, Switzerland, France), the local authorities, the professionals involved in the project, and the buildings' users and residents - in fact, the 17 buildings also include private households. UNESCO's acknowledgement, attesting to the outstanding contribution by this master of architecture to the Modern Movement, represented an incentive to promote, share and protect a complex and fragile heritage of worldwide architecture.
