We visited this museum on our first day in Paris. We were fortunate that there was a guided tour offered on the day. The guide spoke good English, was very knowledgable about the history of the apartment and the biography of Le Corbusier. I would recommend that unless visitors are architecture students or architects, that they book the guided tour.

I visited with my son, a junior Architect with a passion for modern design. To be able to explore a completed house was very exciting. Recommended.

If you don't have time to get out to Villa Savoy, this might hold you over until next trip. Auteuil is full of history and a beautiful neighbourhood to walk. Plan on having a bit to eat while you are here as the deli's are filled with artful flavour.

My first Le Corbusier visit which was a great experience, I went in winter so there was only myself and one other touring the premises. So you could take good photos and have a really good look around. I would recommend going on a sunny day so you can see how the light works within the building, it was raining... More

Watch out - On entry, you will be offered a "billet couple" for two separate places - the Maison La Roche (in Square du Docteur Blanche) and Appartement Le Corbusier, which is some distance away. If you don't speak French you may not realise this - and the cost of the two is much more than I expected for just... More

We are not architects, but have an interest in modern architecture. The Foundation charges 8 euros to see the rump of Le Corbusier's offices. We had been expecting some exhibits on the architect's work, but instead each room had a piece of third rate 'art' that had been inspired by Le Corbusier--or so it was said. We spent 10 minutes...

Maison La Roche & Maison Le Jeanneret are two Modernist houses, built by the influential Swiss architect, Le Corbusier (Charles-Edouard Jeanneret). Originally planned to be part of a whole street of houses designed by le Corbusier, only these two were completed. Today they house the library and archive of the Fondation Le Corbusier, and host design exhibitions relating to his... More

This little gem is worth a visit. Located in the Molitor district, very near Bois de Boulogne, the top floor of a discreetly marked entrance is where the artist lived and worked. (Boulogne Billancourt) From the studio, one gets a great view over the new rugby stadium, an architectural gem of its own. State Jean Bouin. From the top floor... More

Placed in the double villa housing from the middle twenties, Le Corbusier Foundation should be, but is not, the center of the modern architectural thoughts and practices not only in Paris and France, but in Europe as well. Although it is in the process of reconstruction, the foundation is just at the beginning of its path, with so many perspectives... More
