Architect and artist Le Corbusier’s buildings are numbered among the icons of architecture history. Many of the numerous existing illustrations and photographs of these buildings date from the time they were built. But how does the medium of photography encounter Le Corbusier’s built work today? Especially for the new exhibition in the Pavillon Le Corbusier seven contemporary photographers visited seven selected buildings. Their subjective photo portraits are augmented by architecture models of uniform scale and material. On a journey through France and Switzerland the show invites the public to discover Le Corbusier’s architecture from new perspectives.
