This book accompanies an exhibition that traces the life of the great French-Swiss architect through documents, photographs, and many personal objects rediscovered following a restoration of Le Corbusier’s apartment on Rue Nungesser et Coli, Paris. Le Corbusier collected all kinds of everyday objects he called objets à réaction poétique: shells, pieces of wood, glass or bone, stones, enamelled ceramics, bricks, and common objects. Photographs and sketches of cars demonstrate Le Corbusier’s passion for vehicles and means of transport, and the tickets, tourist brochures, and postcards of monuments that the architect collected show his sentimentality for the journeys he took internationally.Details
