APPARTEMENT-ATELIER LE CORBUSIER

Restoration

LE CORBUSIER AND PIERRE JEANNERET, 1934

Restoration of the apartment designed by Le Corbusier, where he lived with his wife until his death in 1965, is a case study.

 

The extensive study by the historian and architect Franz Graff shows with meticulousness the various states the apartment took over time and the whims of Le Corbusier. What to retain today? How can we account for these changes in the thinking and wishes that lead each to continuously transform his personal space? Moreover, how to go about it when it is the private life of one of the greatest architects and artists of the 20th century? The Le Corbusier Foundation set up a multidisciplinary team that works together to provide simple answers to complex questions. The programme calls for modesty and restraint before the artist and his work.
