  1. Ronchamp in the spotlight. The feature of a shocking building in the 50s journals

    Casas Cobo, Francisco Javier
    [EN] Although currently it is largely accepted that Chapelle Notre-Dame du Haut at Ronchamp is one of the milestones in Le Corbusier’s works, there is no less agreement in saying that it was one of the most controversial of his works and one turning point in modern architecture, not only in terms of digging a grave for functionalism but to opening a window to a wide bunch of architects and works that would have been excluded from history and maybe forever otherwise. In order to recall its importance, we must look back to how architectural journals featured Ronchamp in the mid fifties as, on...

  2. Experimenting with prototypes: architectural research in Sweden after Le Corbusier’s projects

    Campo-Ruiz, Ingrid
    [EN] Le Corbusier’s architectural production throughout the twentieth century served as a reference for subsequent developments in architecture and urban planning in Sweden. Some of the buildings and urban plans subsequently developed in Sweden and influenced by Le Corbusier’s ideas and projects also impacted on the international architectural scene. This research analyses how the study of Le Corbusier’s works affected projects in Sweden from the 1920s to the 1970s and how they also became an international standard. Le Corbusier’s works provided a kind of prototype, with which Swedish architects experimented in alternative ways. During the 1920s, Le Corbusier’s Pavilion de l’Esprit Nouveau and the Stuttgart Weissenhofsiedlung...

  3. Bajo la Luz. Buscando la luz

    Viar Fraile, Iñigo
    [EN] Le Corbusier was a great searcher. A light searcher. Afterwards a first period of searching he founded his cubic and white architecture and after the Word War II and fifteen years without erecting up a building, Le Corbusier restarted a new path, a new search for the light in his architecture, much broader. In this second age, the work with the light and with the shadow, mostly with the shadow, as plastic and sculptural mechanism is very deep. He worked with the light via two systems: “interposition” and “capture”. The mechanism of “interposition” was developed by Le Corbusier by means of the BriseSoleil, at...

  4. La Villa Sarabhai. La riqueza de lo ambiguo

    García González, Andrea; Mas Llorens, Vicente; Santatecla Fayos, José
    [EN] Villa Sarabhai is considered by many critics to be a paradigm of "architecture femelle", because it absorbs the setting and has vaulted spaces, which are elements associated with a rustic, folkloric, and even primitive, architecture. However, the evolution of the project shows that Le Corbusier did not intend to integrate the villa into the landscape or pay tribute to traditional architecture. Le Corbusier kept evolving. He added new twists to his consolidated architectonic strategies and defied classification: he generated a free plan by using walls; he transformed the garden terrace from a room without a ceiling into a prairie; and, instead of laminating the...

  5. Búsquedas para el establecimiento de una relación armónica con el paisaje. Dos exploraciones paralelas

    Mejía Vallejo, Clara Elena; Deltell Pastor, Juan
    [EN] The projects for the Sainte-Baume and Cap Martin take up the thread of several previous investigations by Le Corbusier about the medium density housing built from load-bearing walls, as they are the Maisons Loucheur (1929), the Maisons Murodins (1940), the Maisons pour Maîtres et Contremaîtres of the SPA (1940) and the Unites Transitoires (1944). However, one can say that in them lies a new search that has to do with the association of these residential units in favour of forming a coherent and unified whole, analysing the implications that those create with the landscape. At the same time that Le Corbusier makes a reflexion...

  6. Criterios de combinación de colores para la arquitectura en Salubra I: estudio de tonos

    Serra Lluch, Juan de Ribera; Llopis Verdú, Jorge; Torres Barchino, Ana María; Giménez Ribera, Manuel
    [EN] We have carried out a new study of the color combinations selected by Le Corbusier in the ‘claviers’ for the Salubra wallpaper company in 1931, by analyzing them in the Natural Color System NCS, which allows us to understand the perceptive variables of colors (hue, blackness and chromaticness) as well as their combination criteria. In this paper, the selected hue ranges are discussed, and those absent ones. We aim to find out the underlying order in the color combinations by studying the similarities and contrasts of their hues in NCS. We demonstrate graphically some principles in Le Corbusier’s color preferences, such as the usual...

  7. Maisons Jaoul, confort higrotérmico y su percepción en la arquitectura de tipología unifamiliar de Le Corbusier

    Martín Fuentes, Daniel Vicente
    [EN] Trying to achieve a better understanding of the higrothermic performance of The Maisons Jaoul of Le Corbusier, they are studied from different approaches: theoretical, empiric, numeric and perceptual. The aim is to understand profoundly this emblematic building of the domestic architecture of the XX century. For that, the study analyses the project, but also compares and contrasts a series of data coming from the two houses which have a very similar volume and compactness but orthogonal orientation to finally take account of the perception of the actual inhabitants. Conclusions are revealing and strengthen the idea of how exceptional the...

  8. El epígono de El Modulor: La serie amarilla en las investigaciones de Rafael Leoz

    López Díaz, Jesús; Ruíz Suaña, Jose Antonio
    [EN] The Spanish architect Rafael Leoz de la Fuente (1921-1976) before finishing his studies in 1955, began to collaborate with other partners in the realization of social housing projects. His experience in the work of the Poblado Dirigido de Orcasitas, led him to initiate a research process to which he dedicated much of his work. The theoretical works of the architect had an important dissemination and international impact, to a large extent, due to his friendship with Le Corbusier and Jean Prouvé. Personal tuning and coincidence of interests between them, led Le Corbusier to propose to Rafael Leoz as a member of the Cercle d'Études...

  9. La forme du temps à Moscou

    Ponce Gregorio, Pedro
    [EN] It was around september the second, 1931, on a private letter dispatched by some B. Breslow acting as Comercial Representative of the URSS in France, when Le Corbusier received the invitation to participate in the contest of the one that would be for many the essential building of the country, the Palace of the Soviets in Moscow. A building that for that matter would not only enbodies russian´s working class will, but also should become in the same way, there where the El Salvador cathedral was built, the artistic-architectural monument of the still struggling soviet capital. This and not else is the point...


    Garcia-Gasco Lominchar, Sergio
    [EN] Iñaki Abalos develop in “Atlas pintoresco” a research about Modern Movement and its relationship with nature and landscape. The author provides an analysis which unmask the picturesque elements in the work of Le Corbusier. These elements, even being "latent" in its earliest theoretical postulates, gradually and "almost secretly" will take over his way of projecting to conquer all scales of architecture in its final stage. Some of the architectural features of the so-called Paulista School seems to have influences of the later work of Le Corbusier. Paulo Mendes pavilion for the World Expo Osaka'70 can serve to establish an analysis of some of the...

  11. Team10 out of CIAM: Sobre el papel de Le Corbusier. Identificación y legado

    Campos Uribe, Alejandro
    [EN] Albeit different versions of Team 10 birth and dissolution of CIAM exist, all of them coincide in its disruptive nature. This article tries to prove, far from the canonical representation of the end of CIAM and by studying the documents that went through Le Corbusier’s atelier in Paris; that many of the ideas of Team 10 were already present inside CIAM and that Team 10’s creation had the support of several of CIAM’s founding members. It is especially important Le Corbusier’s personal backing. Le Corbusier, who through letters and drawings understood very soon that it was the time to step aside and give way...


    Pérez Rodríguez, Marta
    [EN] Into the ideas enunciated by Le Corbusier there are two paths starting apparently from parallel and opposite worlds, but finally coming to converge in a same place. With the construction of the “Pavillon de l’Esprit Nouveau”, in 1925, it is defined the new outside space linked to modern life. This is given simultaneously from the collective with the “immeuble-villa”, and from the individual, la villa, although both succeed as coexistent processes. This emptiness was called by Le Corbusier “jardin suspendu”, and the order to define it, will be the same used to build the whole system. From inside, this garden will fail to be an...
