Le Corbusier Research Collection

The Le Corbusier Research Collection at the Harvard Graduate School of Design is held in the Frances Loeb Library's Special Collections. The collection was established when the library was dedicated in 1972, and consists primarily of printed materials by and about Le Corbusier (1887-1965). In addition, it includes original materials by Le Corbusier: a group of paintings and drawings in a variety of media, a tapestry, and an unpublished sketchbook. The collection is the focus of continued and ongoing acquisition and collection development, and currently holds over 1100 titles (including re-publications, translations, and new editions).

Collections refer to curated groups of objects or materials that have a focused interest and quality, and that have been brought together by an individual or organization. The Le Corbusier Research Collection is one of such collections.
