Workplace for patient research
For 45 years, Le Corbusier spent half of every day in the place he called his ‘Workplace for patient research’, an intimate personal area where he would write, draw, paint, and create sculptures. At the same time, this workplace unlocked his research as an architect. Over the years, there have been many studies into the relationship between Le Corbusier’s visual work and his architecture, and how his visual thinking process was reflected in his practice as an architect
The exhibition ‘Le Corbusier’s fourth dimension’ shows how important it is to create space for the experiemnt by giving free rein to the irrational. The CoBrA movement advocated right from the start that the irrational character of man should be permanently acknowledged, and therefore given a prominent role in art practice.
