    1. Hi David,
      Regrettably I have no more information other than the one you published in you blog. However, let me suggest you to inquire about this issue to the Foundation Le Corbusier: http://www.fondationlecorbusier.fr/corbuweb/morpheus.aspx?sysName=home&sysLanguage=fr-fr&sysInfos=1
      They probably can give you some more information.
      Good luck.
