31 in 31 of Your Favorite Buildings in Boston: #22

Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Harvard University, 21 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA

Le Corbusier with Sert, Jackson, and Gourley, 1961-1963

I was inspired to highlight 31 buildings in Boston in 31 days after the architecture blog A Daily Dose of Architecture . Not only was I going to highlight 31 buildings, but 31 of Bostonian’s favorite buildings. This is the series.

About the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts:

I love that the only building by master architect Le Corbusier in North America made this Favorite Buildings in Boston Series.  The building is dramatic and celebrates the dynamism of concrete and the rounded forms typical of Le Corbusian architecture. One great building to see, admire and learn from.
