UNESCO has added seventeen works by the seminal Modernist architect, Le Corbusier, to the World Heritage List—a collection of sites recognized for their cultural and/or physical significance. The structures, which span seven continents, include the Palace of Assembly in Chandigarh, India, the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo, and La Cite Radieuse in Marseille. The designations could cause somewhat of a stir as two recent publications have claimed that Le Corbusier was a fascist and Nazi sympathizer.
