LC2015 - Le Corbusier, 50 years later


In August 1965, Le Corbusier, recognized as the most important architect of the twentieth-century, passed away in the Mediterranean Sea waters. For this reason, the Architectural Design Department at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, with the support of the Le Corbusier Foundation in Paris, promotes this international conference in Valencia.

Le Corbusier was one of the most prolific architects in the creation of links between ideas and images, between visual arts and architecture, between history and modernity. The power of his ideas was continually being tested and confirmed by his architectural work. In his projects, writings, paintings and sculptures he worked out different visions of what should match architectural modernity, which drew on a personal background built upon diverse ideological references. If there is any outstanding feature in his career, it is the transversal condition of his creative work. This idea of transversality enables us to open this conference to artists, historians, book publishers, photographers, thinkers and, of course, architects.
