Following the business program join us for a screening of Le Corbusier 50: Stories of Encounters that have Revolutionized Design (the first time in St. Louis). According to wikipedia, Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, known as Le Corbusier (French: [lə kɔʁbyˈzje]; 6 October 1887 – 27 August 1965), was a Swiss-French architect, designer, painter, urban planner, writer, and one of the pioneers of what is now called modern architecture. He was born in Switzerland and became a French citizen in 1930. His career spanned five decades and he designed buildings in Europe, Japan, India, and North and South America.
The film highlights Le Corbusier’s talent as a designer, from modern architecture to furniture designs that are still sold new today.
