Le Corbusier at MoMA

Monday, July 8th, 2013

It's not just Kanye West that's sweet on Le Corbusier these days. Through September 23, the Museum of Modern Art in New York hosts Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes, the museum's first-ever comprehensive exhibition on Le Corbusier. It encompasses his work not only as an architect, but an interior designer, artist, city planner, writer, and photographer. MoMA will be the only venue in the United States for the exhibition, which later moves on to Barcelona and Madrid. 

From MoMA:

Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes reveals the ways in which Le Corbusier observed and imagined landscapes throughout his career, using all the artistic mediums and techniques at his disposal, from early watercolors of Italy, Greece, and Turkey, to sketches of India, and from photographs of his formative journeys to architectural models of his large-scale projects. All of these dimensions of his artistic process, including major paintings and four reconstructed interiors, are presented in the largest exhibition ever produced in New York of Le Corbusier’s protean and influential oeuvre.
