According to Le Parisien, an agreement towards the creation of the museum was signed on Monday by the mayor of Poissy, Karl Olive, representatives of the Le Corbusier Foundation, the Center for National Monuments, and the Urban Community of Greater Paris Seine & Oise.
“The foundation had the long-standing ambition to create a place in tribute to [Le Corbusier]. This has crystallized in recent years because there is a real political will to go in this direction,” Antoine Picon, president of Fondation Le Corbusier told Le Parisien.
“The idea is to combine the paintings, drawings, sketches, and expertise of the architect [under one roof],” said Olive, who added that the museum should be ready between 2022 and 2023. ... Le Parisian reports that a plot of land, spanning 12,000 square meters, opposite Le Corbusier’s world famous Villa Savoye could be the perfect spot for the museum.
“We don’t know yet what the building will look like […] but it will also include a documentation center containing all the known archives,” Le Roux added.
