Le Corbusier's ideas were important during his lifetime because they continued the growing movement of modernity. They were also important because he was building affordable housing for after WW1 was finished which shows how he was interested in helping the community after the war was done. His ideas were important to modernism because he brought new ideas like functionalism which helped change the idea of what architecture was during the time. His ideas are important today because they are still used today and also he helped make major changes of design and planning for buildings. Instead of them being impractical he helped them become specifically made for living in (A History of Western Society).
