Architecture and Happiness according to Le Corbusier

‘Nevertheless there is ARCHITECTURE. An admirable thing, the most beautiful. The product of happy peoples and what happy peoples produce.
Happy cities have architecture.
Architecture is in the telephone and in the Parthenon. How comfortable it might be in our homes. Our houses make streets and streets make cities and cities, they're individuals who take on a soul, who feel, suffer, and admire. How well architecture might be in the streets and in the whole city!

Le Corbusier, Towards an Architecture (1923)
