The purpose of this paper is to clarify the architectural technique and its transition of the pavilions by the architect Le Corbusier (1887-1965) to consider the relation of the exhibition space and the Kansei (sensibility) from the viewpoint of Kansei-philosophy. The genealogy of the pavilions by Le Corbusier is the process that the pavilions which have provisional, temporal and flexible characteristics are established as original style. By extracting the characteristic elements of pavilion (the exhibit, the slope, the roof garden, the wall painting, the revolving door and the natural surroundings) and analyzing the transition of each element, we can point out the importance of the development of the slope which provides the divers views. That is to say, the pavilions with the large span as “Exhibition space” become to “Kansei space”.
