Le Corbusier was the pioneer of modernism in architecture, the founder of what became the so-called Bauhaus-Movement in architecture.
“Le Corbusier: ‘For 40 years I’ve been looking for a photographer able to express architecture.’
He had finally found him in Hervé Lucien. The two men worked together for the next 16 years—some of Le Corbusier’s most fruitful—until the architect’s death in 1965. ”

In 1952 the architect Le Corbusier designed a wooden one-room retreat on a beach of the Côte d’Azur, beside a simple fish restaurant.This ‘hut’ became known as the famous CABANON.
