    Le Corbusier at MOMA via ArchPaper

    Arguably the most influential member of the first generation of modernists, Le Corbusier fashioned himself into a myth with an invented name, catchy polemics, and doctrinaire and legitimately revolutionary architecture. A new exhibition at MoMA seeks to flesh out the man behind the signature glasses with the largest collection of his architectural drawings, urban plans, sketches, paintings, photographs, and writings ever seen in New York. Drawn from MoMA’s collection as well as the Le Corbusier Foundation, Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes focuses on four types of landscapes at different scales: found objects, the domestic, the modern city, and planned territories.
