Le Corbusier, primarily known for his contribution to modern design and urban planning of the late 19th and early 20th century, is currently MoMA’s feature architect in the recent special exhibition Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscape on view June 15 through September 23, 2013. While the exhibition focuses on Corbusier’s reputation as architectural mastermind through a conglomeration of trace paper sketches, detailed eighth-inch orthogonal drawings, site plans, and white-stained process models all hung salon style, MoMA opted to display a lesser known Le Corbusier as artist, interior designer, and photographer.
