Le Corbusier at the Barbican
I've posted about his over on our sister blog, but it's definitely worthy of a double post. Le Corbusier (1887-1965) is my favourite architect ever, his buildings are stunning and still look modern, even though the one above was completed in 1931.
"His architecture and radical ideas for reinventing modern living, from private villas to large scale social housing to utopian urban plans, still resonate today".
Le Corbusier: The Art of Architecture is running at the Barbican Art Gallery until 24 May 2009 - it's a must-see and I can't wait to get down there and see it!
If you can't visit the exhibition there is more information about the life and work of this great architect here and here.
