About the Museum
The Heidi Weber-Museum, or Pavillon Le Corbusier, is a Swiss art museum in Zürich-Seefeld at Zürichhorn dedicated to the work of the Swiss architect Le Corbusier.
In 1960, Heidi Weber had the vision to establish a museum designed by Le Corbusier with the intention to exhibit his works of art in an ideal environment created by the architect himself in the then Centre Le Corbusier or Heidi Weber Museum. In April 2014, the city of Zürich took ownership of the building and museum, renaming it in May 2016.
It is the last building designed by Le Corbusier in the 1960s, marking a radical change in architecture by using concrete and stone, framed in steel and glass. This technique was a signpost for the future. Le Corbusier predominantly used prefabricated steel elements combined with multi-coloured enamelled plates fitted to the central core, and above the complex, he designed a 'free-floating' roof to keep the house protected from the rain and the sun.
