Le Corbusier and Color
Museum für Gestaltung Zurich, Switzerland
Until November 28, 2021

Color in architecture is a means as powerful as the ground plan and section.” Le Corbusier was fascinated by color, and by the spatial and associative properties of color, his whole life long. A universal artist, he made color an integral part of his architectural concept and developed “color keyboards” to match. The Zurich pavilion marks the culmination of his lifelong preoccupation with color in architecture.

This exhibition retraces the most important milestones of Le Corbusier’s polychromy with some 100 photographs, originals, and plans. It shows how his uniquely intelligible position has forfeited none of its topicality and interest. Three large-format installations assure visitors of a sensually immersive experience of color.
