Le Corbusier Exhibit at the Vitra Design Museum

The retrospective “Le Corbusier - The Art of Architecture” at the Vitra Design Museum covers a period of 60 years - from Le Corbusier’s early works in his Swiss hometown of La Chaux-de-Fonds to the late works of the 1950s and 1960s (Chapel of Ronchamp, Indian city of Chandigarh). “Divided into three largely independent sections entitled ‘Contexts’, ‘Privacy and Publicity’ and ‘Built Art’, the show also focuses on major themes in his work, such as his ongoing interest in the Mediterranean and the Orient, his shift toward organic forms in the 1930s, as well as his exploration of new technologies and media.
