'Space and light and order. Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep.' Le Corbusier
Explore the extraordinary career and enduring legacy of Le Corbusier (1887-1965), iconic architect, designer, writer and artist in the first major exhibition of his life and work seen in Britain for over 20 years.
Undoubtedly the single most influential architect of the twentieth century, Le Corbusier was also the most controversial. Across the world, his revolutionary designs were instrumental in the development of modern architecture, forever changing the environment in which we live.
From high rise towers to furniture design, his vision of functionalism – using modern materials and engineering techniques – provided radical yet practical solutions to modern urban living, which still evoke strong views today.
Featuring unique drawings, models, paintings, furniture, photographs and films, 'Le Corbusier – The Art of Architecture' takes an in depth look at the projects, interiors and art of Le Corbusier and reveals the man behind the myth.
The exhibition also explores the creative process behind his most important projects, with previously unpublished material including original film footage by the architect, a large-scale mural painting from his office and reconstructions of his architectural models.
Organised by the RIBA Trust, 'Le Corbusier – The Art of Architecture' is showing, as part of Liverpool 2008, European Capital of Culture, in the dramatic Crypt of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King, Liverpool, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
