As an architecture student in the 70's, we studied le Corbusier extensively. While he was very creative, I can't say I have ever seen one of his buildings in which I would want to spend any time. Evidently this building was intended to be an...More

You pay 12CHF to see a largely empty building. Most of the interesting spaces are not accessible as they are now office or research space. The building itself needs work - the film is peeling off the windows as is the paint on the underside...More

Architects will view this as a pilgrimage point, but it's a wonderful visit for architects and non architect alike. A beautiful example of Le Corbusier's work, which has been maintained in wonderful condition. The surrounding park and gardens as well as lakeside walks make it...More

A truly wonderful experience for people interested in the master Le Corbusier. A really interesting example of his design, although he did not see it finished. The external setting is really lovely and the reflecting pool pushes light up to the canopy above the roof...More

We had been there with friends as we like Bauhaus architecture a lot and thought we show the others something new. The house is nice and location is great. However, the exhibition is far from good. There is no information on the house, no leaflets...More

Yes, you can see the outside. The house is in a park like setting close to the lake. Very pretty area. There's a couple of other things to see in the area as well.
