The official catalogue of the exhibition !

Architect, urban planner, painter and renowned sculptor, Le Corbusier has defined the man as an universal metric reference in the architecture. The Centre Pompidou presents a major exhibition on the architect, offering an new approach elaborated around the notion of human proportion.

Description

The Centre Pompidou is devoting a completely new retrospective, featuring some three hundred works, to the output of Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, aka Le Corbusier.

Not only a visionary architect, urban planner and theorist of modernity, but also a painter and sculptor, Le Corbusier made a profound impression on the 20th century in dramatically changing architecture and the way it is «inhabited». His international career flourished long before globalisation made its appearance.

Adopting a decidedly innovative approach, the book takes a fresh look at the output of this major figure in modernity through the proportions of the human body, which Le Corbusier considered essential as a universal principle. For the architect, this «measurement of man» defined all aspects of architecture and spatial composition.
