    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.

A snippet from the final pages of Apartment Houses (1947) by Joseph Henry Abel. Concerning the future of apartment buildings, an image of Le Corbusier’s Unité d’Habitation is shown, but the text describes the change to be a long process. A little dim in the scan, below the chapter, a reader from the past has made a pencil note: “How true!”
