Masters of 20th century architecture: Le Corbusier

Luis Fernández-Galiano

In this lecture, the architect, professor and critic Luis Fernández-Galiano analyzes the life and artistic career of Le Corbusier (1887-1965), a versatile architect and artist whose work is considered key to the evolution of modern architecture. His distinctive classicist style and his zeal for rationalist abstraction were influenced by Picasso's cubism, the automobile industry and, above all, the ancient world, which he transferred to the regular patterns of his work and to the search for essential geometry, adding dreamlike and primitive elements in the last years of his career. Le Corbusier also stood out in his dedication to the plastic arts and the theory of architecture, with proposals such as the Dom-Ino and Modulor systems.
