“a doctor can bury his mistakes but an architect can only advise his client to plant vines.”

fortunately, wright’s quote doesn’t apply to the so called iconic architect of the 20th century, charles gris also knows as le corbusier.

i won’t try to summarise what le corbusier meant to modern architecture, google it if you don’t know(Les 5 Points d’ une architecture nouvelle and the study of villa savoye – one of the statement buildings that emerged from those five points formulated in 1926 – would be a good start).

if you do know, then this is for you:

liverpool exhibition – Le Corbusier Art and Architecture – until the 18th of january, moving afterwards to london to the barbican art gallery until may.

going on the 17th, yes yes, oh yay.
