History of the house

Classed as a historic monument in 1986, the Fondation suisse is one of the most poignant achievements of the interwar period. It was the first modern building at the Cité internationale. The exceptional value of the architectural work is also linked to its pioneering furniture design.

In 1948 Le Corbusier came back to the Cité internationale to create a large mural in the Salon sourbe, in order to replace the former photographic mural that had deteriorated during the Second World War. The rooms, furnished by Charlotte Perriand, were subject to important modifications on the southern façade. The polychromy was completely redone according to the new lively colour palette that was adopted by Le Corbusier.

Upcoming events

Thanks to its 43 houses, the Cité internationale offers a rich cultural and artistic program to all audiences : concerts, screenings, conferences, exhibitions, shows…
