BUY $732,000

An apartment in the first and most famous of a building complex designed by fame architect, Le Corbusier, also known as Cité radieuse (Radiant City). The buildings were built between 1947 and 1952. One of Le Corbusiers's most famous works, it proved enormously influential and is often cited as the initial inspiration of the Brutalist architectural style and philosophy. The building is constructed in béton brut (rough-cast concrete), as the hoped-for steel frame proved too expensive in light of post-War shortages.
