Le Corbusier - The Art of Architects

2nd October - 18th January 2009

The Crypt,
Liverpool Metropolitan Museum, England

In Liverpool this autumn, as part of Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture celebrations, the RIBA Trust will present the first major UK exhibition of works by world renowned architect Le Corbusier, for over 20 years.

Swiss born Le Corbusier has been credited as the godfather of modern architecture with his iconic buildings in Europe, India, North and South America having changed the face of architecture.

On display in the vaults of Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral Crypt, the exhibition will explore Corbusier’s unique multi- disciplinary approach to the contemporary environment which saw him fuse art, design, urban planning, architecture and even film into his practise. Works on display will include not only original architecture models and drawings but also paintings, films, sketches, furniture, sculpture, and vintage prints.

Amongst the highlights are exhibits such as the monumental mural painting from Le Corbusier’s office at Rue de Sèvres in Paris (1948), a large-scale model of the Philips Pavilion (1958), original film footage shot by Corbusier in Arcachon and Rio de Janeiro, and a reconstruction of the model of his utopian masterplan for Paris, the Plan Voisin (1925), none of which has been exhibited in the UK before.

An ideal way to spend those dark afternoons.

The Art of Architecture is an exhibition by Vitra Design Museum in collaboration with the Netherlands Architecture Institute and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Trust.
