Over and above the question of how to conserve the concrete buildings of Le Corbusier in Chandigarh, I would like, during this lecture, to shed light on the beginning of the architect's use of this material in his works. Strating from the phrase by Siegfried Giedion, "The material will be the ornament of the 20th century," I want to examine the work of Le Corbusier on the discovery of concrete as a plastic component.
