LE CORBUSIER in CaixaForum

January 29, 2014

lecorbusiereThe CaixaForum presents its first major exhibition on the work of Le Corbusier (Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, 1887–1965), encompassing his work as an architect, interior designer, artist, city planner, writer, and photographer. Conceived by guest curator Jean-Louis Cohen, the exhibition reveals the ways in which Le Corbusier observed and imagined landscapes throughout his career, using all the artistic techniques at his disposal, from his early watercolors of Italy, Greece, and Turkey, to his sketches of India, and from the photographs of his formative journeys to the models of his large-scale projects.

CaixaForum Barcelona pays tribute to one of the most influential architects of the 20th century through paintings, projects and models from the Fondation Le Corbusier in Paris, the MoMA in New York City and other museums and collections around the world.

Le Corbusier is key to understanding 20th-century architecture. That’s why this show spans his entire career, from his first years in Switzerland to his buildings in Istanbul, Athens, Rome, Paris, Geneva, Moscow, Barcelona, New York City and India.

The exhibition reflects every phase of Le Corbusier’s career through an extensive selection of paintings, architectural plans and models, most of them on loan from the Fondation Le Corbusier in Paris and the MoMA in New York City. It also examines other facets of Le Corbusier’s work such as his painting and photography.
