Title: Le Poème de l'Angle Droit / Poem of the
Publisher: Hatje Cantz
Between 1947 to 1953, Le Corbusier produced
a succession of lithographs and poems that can be regarded as an
artistic realization of his view of life, a new synthesis
between architecture and plastic arts, influenced by the idea of the
ineffability of space.
The works have been arranged in such a way that seven rows one upon the
other result in a picture
wall, an 'iconostasis'. Each row is dedicated to a specific topic,
ranging from the environment via mental and physical elements to the
right angle, with which the
human being establishes his own order.
This great facsimile reproduces the written pages and drawings of the
1955 original edition and ends with an historic-critic essay by Juan Calatrava.
Le Poème de l'Angle Droit / Poem of the Right Angle
is exhibited at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich until September
