That October the sixth, in the year two thousand and twenty, is the one hundred and thirty-third birthday of Charles-Edouard Jeanneret would be unremarkable except that at the age of 33 he morphed into Le Corbusier, the equivocal Olympian god of modern architecture in the 20th century. Or at least some think of him that way (and I am one of them).
