Le Corbusier Sculptures

Fantastic sculptures from the one and only Charles-Edouard Jeannette, better known as Architect Le Corbusier.  Lightly more creative then his earlier projects, one can see parallels between him and Salvador Dali’s paintings in  Le Corbusier sculptures, even though it’s no secret that they weren’t the biggest fans of each other.

Regularly analyzing whether he liked purely functional and industrial products or if he liked one-of-a-kind handmade items, Le Corbusier reached a middle ground - a home that’s purely functional with industrial products to match its character.  For Le Corbusier, sculptures put his thoughts into perspective and inspired him to see the art side of things.  Le Corbusier found the balance between two elements and succeeded. 

Le Corbusier abandoned the idea of Purism in the 1950′s and began making more robust work, even his architecture turned from being lightweight into more of a heavier feel with splashes of bright colors.  He left concrete unfinished, wooden forms visible and explored unusual shapes and forms. 

“ To create architecture is to put in order. Put what in order? Function and objects.”  Le Corbusier
