Le Corbusier (Dalhousie University)
Artstor is collaborating with the School of Architecture, Faculty of Architecture and Planning at Dalhousie University to share approximately 250 images of architecture by Le Corbusier in the Digital Library. The images have been selected from a collection of slides donated to Dalhousie University by the family of Paul Jobin, which are housed in the School of Architecture's Slide Library. During the 1970s, Jobin, an architectural draftsman, photographed numerous buildings designed by the Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier (Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris, 1887-1965), a major figure in the development of modern architecture. The collection includes documentation of a number of sites in France, including: Ozenfant House and Studio, Paris; Villa La Roche-Jeanneret, Paris; Villa Cook, Boulogne; Palais du Peuple, Paris; Cité de Refuge, Paris; Pavillon Suisse, Cité Universitaire, Paris; Unité d'Habitation, Marseilles; Maisons Jaoul, Neuilly-sur-Seine; Couvent Sainte Marie de la Tourette, Eveux; Maison du Bresil, Cité Universitaire, Paris; Unité d'Habitation, Firminy; Maison de la Culture, Firminy; and Municipal Pool, Firminy.
The School of Architecture, Faculty of Architecture and Planning at Dalhousie University is located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Founded in 1961, the school's primary aim is to educate students who plan to become professional architects. To support the curriculum, the Resource Centre provides students with access to slide and digital images, through a local database and Artstor.
