Cité ouvrière, 1924, Lège-Cap Ferret, France

Lège-Cap Ferret

The working city of Lège bourg was created in 1924 on the initiative of the industrialist Henri Frugès following his creative encounter with Le Corbusier in 1923.

This “revolutionary” achievement for the time, due to its architectural, urban and technical design, comprises seven buildings including six individual dwellings and a collective building.

As a testimony of modern architectural heritage, the first small working-class town by Le Corbusier was built in Lège-Cap Ferret. Too little known, it is nevertheless the “big little sister” of the city of Pessac.
