In 1922 I joined forces with my cousin, Pierre Jeanneret. With loyalty, optimism, initiative and persistence, with good humour…and in league with the resistance forces of the age we set to work. Two men who understand each other are worth three who stand alone. By never pursuing lucrative goals, by refusing to make compromises, but, rather, being in love with our passionate quest, which is what makes life worth living, we have managed to occupy the entire field of architecture, from the minutest detail to the vast plans of a city.
