letter from la chaux-de-fonds

The Swiss town of La Chaux-de-Fonds takes pride in its most famous son, who is, of course, Le Corbusier. Visitors are encouraged to explore the town and its surroundings on a series of themed walks, one of which includes all his early buildings there - five houses and the Scala cinema.
