This exhibition is not limited to the photographic representation of the achievements of Le Corbusier. Photography becomes both a tool for promoting or disseminating and a means of artistic and visual research. Specialists of the work of Le Corbusier and of photography have had different approaches to this little explored subject so far.
Le Corbusier (1887-1965) is one of the major figures of the twentieth century: his architectural practice and thought have profoundly influenced several generations of architects and urban planners, and his legacy still contributes in shaping contemporary environment.
A good many exhibitions have already been devoted to the multiple facets of Le Corbusier's work, but his relationship to photography, although it touches on many aspects of his varied career, is a theme that has so far received little attention.
