The only piece in the U.S. of Le Corbusier is located in Cambridge, next to the Harvard Art Museums. The architect accepted the design, despite a delay due to budgetary and schedule conflicts. The comic, perhaps, tragic situation is Le Corbusier visited twice the U.S during that period and yet he never saw the actual building through to its finish due to his poor health. Now, this building is used by Harvard University for the department of Visual and Environmental Studies and a theater, the Harvard Film Archive. The building serves as a venue for a great deal of events, especially films.
