Le Corbusier: Mesures de l’homme, Centre Pompidou, Paris

The major retrospective Le Corbusier: Mesures de l’homme at the Centre Pompidou, Paris continues until 3 August. Not only a visionary architect, urban planner and theorist of modernity, but also a painter and sculptor, Le Corbusier made a profound impression on the 20th century in dramatically changing architectural design and the way people lived in it. The Centre Pompidou invites audiences to grasp the output of this major figure in modernity through the idea of human proportions, the human body being essential as a universal principle defining all aspects of architecture and spatial composition.
