Trial access to Le Corbusier Plan digital archive through June 30

April 28th, 2015 by Pamela McLaughlin

Trial access is now available to Le Corbusier Plans, the first high-definition digital archive of all of the built and unbuilt work of the Swiss born architect, Le Corbusier. Le Corbusier Plans was developed through the partnership of Fondation Le Corbusier of France and Echelle-1 of Japan.

One of the most influential architects of the 20th century, Le Corbusier left behind a legacy of designs and plans, spanning 38,000 notes, diagrams, and drawings. Fondation Le Corbusier, established in 1968, painstakingly collected and catalogued these designs and plans so that Le Corbusier’s legacy could be passed along to future generations of architects and scholars. Echelle-1 spent seven years digitizing and cataloging the Foundation’s  collection of Le Corbusier’s architectural works, covering his 325 projects starting from 1905 through to 1964.

Le Corbusier Plans Online (LCPO) service can be accessed from within Syracuse University’s network with a valid SU email address. Individual user registration is done by following these steps:
