Rethinking Landscape with Le Corbusier

September 13, 2013

Organized in conjunction with the exhibition, "Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes," this full-day symposium considers Le Corbusier's exploration of landscape in the context of current architectural theory and practice. From domestic spaces to urban landscapes to infrastructure design, this program will investigate Le Corbusier's work historically, while considering the widespread influence of his ideas today. This program was organized by exhibition curators Barry Bergdoll and Jean-Louis Cohen. Participants include Dorothée Imbert, Caroline Constant, Tim Benton, Adriaan Geuze, Carlos Eduardo Comas, Anthony Vidler, and Mia Lehrer, Guy Nordenson, Keller Easterling, and Sébastien Marot.
