A free translation to English:
Charles-Édouard Jeanneret was born in 1887 in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. He became a self-taught architect, who in 1916 moved to Paris. The following year he was commissioned by a friend who owned the castle Château Chavat on the river Garonne to draw a water tower for the castle's water supply in the town of Podensac, 3 km south of Bordeaux.
It became a 25 m high tower, which under the 80 m³ reservoir was given a room with high French windows. The water tower was taken out of operation in 1940, but still stands today, now adjacent to a larger and higher municipal water tower. Charles-Edouard is more known by the artist name Le Corbusier.
