The lecture is about the five projects that Le Corbusier designed in Belgium, three of that were realised. A year before the Weissenhofsiedlung in Stuttgart, the Guiette House was built in Antwerp in 1926. In 1935 Le Corbusier designed and realized the “Pavillon du Jeune Homme” in Brussels together with Charlotte Perriand. Another important project by Le Corbusier after 1945 was the Philips Pavilion, built for the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair.
The second part of the lecture shows the influence of Le Corbusier on the works of the Belgian architects Gaston Eysselinck (1907-1953) and Leon Stijnen (1899-1990).

Marc Dubois is a Belgian architect and author of numerous texts and publications. He has been President of DOCOMOMO Belgium since 2015.
