Pierre Jeanneret was born in Geneva in 1896. He studied at the school of Beaux-Arts in Geneva. Then, he moved to Paris and worked with Gustave and Auguste Perret during one year (1921-1922). He quickly started collaboration with his cousin Le Corbusier. In 1926, they published a manifesto about architecture “Cinq Points vers une Nouvelle Architecture” which played a big part during the many constructions they did together such as the Villa Savoye (1928-1931). In 1929, Jeanneret, Le Corbusier and Perriand presented during the “Salon d’Automne” in Paris a furniture collection. The role of Jeanneret during the projects of Le Corbusier is often minimized but it is a mistake: his work was really important and determining.
