Conscience of Modern Architecture Le Corbusier in Focus at MAS

book cover le corbusier a life

Irascible and caustic, tender and enthusiastic, more than a mercurial innovator, Le Corbusier was considered to be the very conscience of modern architecture. At tomorrow night’s book program and lecture, Nicholas Fox Weber author of the new biography of the man, Le Corbusier – A Life, will discuss Le Corbusier the precise, mathematical, practical-minded artist whose idealism — vibrant, poetic, imaginative; discipline; and sensuality were reflected in his iconic designs and pioneering theories of architecture and urban planning. Weber’s engrossing, entertaining portrait of his complex personality is full of provocative insights and welcome surprises.
