Cutting Through Le Corbusier

Spring 2020

Taught By: David Lewis

Section: A

CRN: 6943

Credits: 3

In this seminar students will be asked to closely examine the work of Le Corbusier, not only as a subject but also as a representative of the significant changes in the discourse of architecture since 1900. Using the body of work created by Le Corbusier and his Atelier, students will execute complex drawings, working between section, plan and projection to re-examine the work of this most influential architect of the 20th Century. Using drawings as an essential tool in the exploration of the intersection of site, form, material, ecology, color and ideology, students will integrate the history of architecture with critical analysis. In addition, students will move between analogue and digital forms of projection, using the research into the Section contained in The Manual of Section as a latent theme throughout the semester.

Open to: All university graduate degree students; upper level undergraduate students with permission. Pre-requisite(s): none.
