Le Corbusier at The Courtauld Institute
Jonathan shared his enthusiasm for Le Corbusier in a seminar to BA Art History students at The Courtauld Institute today. Invited by Dr Caroline Levitt, Jonathan discussed Corbusier’s 5 points for a New Architecture as demonstrated in the Villa Savoye. They then analysed his use of concrete as both a contemporary and future material.
To contextualise, Jonathan then took the students through the design and manufacture of the Pod, highlighting the use of innovative materials and techniques, to give an idea of the design process and the work of a contemporary architect.
