Course Description

Charles-Edouard Jeanneret (1887-1965), the Swiss architect known as Le Corbusier, was an intriguing man who lived during a fascinating time. From his formative creation of a "Modulor" architecture at only age 27 to his work in creating (or “stealing”?) world-renowned designs for furniture and his self-declared penchant for Josephine Baker, this creator’s work cannot fully be understood without aligning it with his personal journey. Through this course we will investigate six specific works of architecture as well as Corbu’s visual art, his influences on the European modernist community, his rather bewitching convictions, and the contemporary legacy that he left behind. Was he a success or a failure? A madman or a genius? A Vichy collaborator or a humanitarian? You decide. | Lecture + Q&A.
