It will include 20 original paintings, 8 sculptures, 20 vintage furniture pieces, about 50 books, approximately 80 original drawings and plans, and more than 70 objects from the architect's personal collection.

His most important architectural works are represented by both original and newly built models, while several reconstructed interiors demonstrate Le Corbusier's conception of domestic space. Among the highlights of the exhibition are the monumental mural painting from his own office at Rue de Sèvres in Paris, a large-scale model of the Philips Pavilion (1958) that reflects Le Corbusier's anticipation of today's computer-generated architecture, original film footage shot by the architect in Arcachon and Rio de Janeiro, and a reconstruction of the model of Le Corbusier's utopian master plan for Paris, the Plan Voisin (1925), which established his reputation as one of the most advanced thinkers of the time.
