Dated "27 oct 1928", from Moscow, concerning his visit and mentioning his acceptance for the design of the Centrosoyuz Building: "Alors voici que j'emporte la commande du palais du Centrosoyuz. Ce cera le plus grand bâtiment construit par la nouvelle Russie. Je rencontre ici partout une sympathie tres vive. Et à la tête des organisations il y a des hommes d'une grande force et d'une grande intelligence. Tout ce que je vois cet très impressionnant"; 3. Undated (±1929), from Rio de Janeiro: "C'est la fin.

6. Carbon copy of a TYPESCRIPT LETTER to "K Moser", dated "10 mars 1928", 1 leaf, on the deception surrounding the debacle concerning the building of the Palace of Nations.

= "L'idée a été battue. Cette fois nous sommes désarmé et c'est fini. Je dis que c'est là une bande cochers qui gouvernent avec les yeux troubles. Ils ne comprennent pas. Ce qui est mélancolique c'est d'admettre que nous sommes gouvérnés en morale, en finance, en esprit intérnational par les mèmes gens. (...) Je suis triste en songeant que ce palais aurait pu être beau. Non pas beau parceque c'est moi qui l 'aurai fait, mais beau parcequ'il aurait été bâti sur la foi, sur le feu de la passion pour l'architecture. Ce sont des cadavres pourris qui le bâtiront! (...) Votre attitude dans cette affaire demeurera pour moi un exemple durable. Je me souviendrai du professeur Moser, en cheveux gris, menant la bataille pour les jeunes. Combien êtes-vous de cette forçe de caractère?"

AND: Moser, K. (1860-1936). One AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED "K Moser" to "Lieber Auguste", dated "16.I.1926", w. the printed letterhead of the League of Nations, mentioning the architectural competition for the erection of a League of Nations building in Geneva. Idem. One AUTOGRAPH POSTCARD SIGNED "K Moser" to "E Moser", dated "Paris 17.V.30". - AND also including i.a. 2 articles by C. ZERVOS from Cahiers d'Art: "Qui batira le Palais des Nations a Genève? Étude-Manifeste de Cahiers d'Arts en faveur d'un project moderne" and "Qui Batira le Palais des Nations? III. La décision de Jury"; 5 photographs showing designs by the S.d.N. (Société des Nations) and a series of 4 albumen photographs mounted on board, each SIGNED by Joseph Vago (one of the members of the design team for the Palais des Nations), titled "Nouvelle Études pour le Palais de la Société des Nations" and dated "1928". Also includes i.a. 13 original photographs of i.a. Karl Moser (1x) and group photographs of Le Corbusier and colleagues discussing the design of the Palace of Nations.

= From the property of Claude Suter, Parisian architect and grandchild of Karl Moser. Karl Moser (1860-1936) was a Swiss architect who was educated at the same school as Berlage, the ETH in Zürich. He is regarded as a pioneer of the Modern Movement in Switzerland and the first president of the Congrès International d'Architecture Moderne which championed rational and functional architecture. He was a dear friend of Le Corbusier, as is clear from the eulogy Le Corbusier wrote after his death (present in the archive). The present archive invites us to see the development of Le Corbusier during his defining years. The archive narrates the pivotal issue concerning the competition for the design of the Palais des Nations in Geneva from the modernist angle through the responses of Le Corbusier, the articles by Zervos and the designs shown by one of the members of the council that actually got to design the building. It shows the clash of the traditionalist architects and the modernists and the struggle that is ensues when the status quo is challenged. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE LIX.

= Auguste Suter, Swiss sculptor who moved to Paris in 1910 to the Academie Julian to study sculpting.
