    Le Courbusier is known as tha father of modern architecture. he was a native Swiss who later moved to fRance and got french citizenship. Le Corbusier explicitly used the golden ratio in his Modulor system for the scale of architectural proportion
    He also was one of architects which was involved in the planing of united nations headquarter in NEW YORK,even he was already quite old.
    50 designs were evaluated by the team, brazilian architect Niemeyer’s project 32 was finally chosen.As opposed to Corbusier’s project 23, which consisted of one building containing both the Assembly Hall and the councils in the centre of the site (as it was hierarchically the most important building), Niemeyer’s plan split the councils from the Assembly Hall, locating the first alongside the river, and the second on the right side of the secretariat. This would not split the site, but on the contrary, would create a large civic square. George Dudley latter stated:It literally took our breath away to see the simple plane of the site kept open from First Avenue to the River, only three structures on it, standing free, a fourth lying low behind them along the river’s edge. …He [Niemeyer] also said, ‘beauty will come from the buildings being in the right space!’. The comparison between Le Corbusier’s heavy block and Niemeyer’s startling, elegantly articulated composition seem to me to be in everyone’s min
    Latter on the day, Corbusier came once again to Niemeyer, and asked him to reposition the Assembly Hall back to the centre of the site. Such modification would destroy Niemeyer’s plans for a large civic square. However, he finally decided to accept the modification:
    I felt Corbusier would like to do his project, and he was the master. I do not regret my decision.Together, they submitted the scheme 23–32, which was built and is what can be seen today.
