The skillful staging of light-dark and solid-void contrasts characterizes Le Corbusier’s architecture. The well-considered placement of white elements is key to its success. The white solid is drawn against the background, which may be dark, blue as the sky, or sandy. But which white did Le Corbusier give preference to? “Rendered completely in white, the building would resemble a pot of cream,” he wrote in 1925, proving that his white had a color like this and not the paler color of milk or porcelain.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
