Discussed in ths CPD event is the meaning of detail and the way in which Le Corbusier used it as a means to convey aspects of his wider architectural philosophy.

While being loaded with meaning, Le Corbusier’s details are astonishingly raw and risky. There is a great deal to be learned by examining his buildings on their own terms. Le Corbusier is for his ability to develop detailing systems that reproduced, on a small scale, the organizational ideas of the buildings themselves. Not only do they express the organizational ideas, they also express Le Corbusier’s philosophies which encompassed not just buildings, but his view of the entirety of existence.

In Towards New Architecture Le Corbusier posed the question ‘from what is emotion born?’: ‘From a certain harmony with the things that make up the site. From a  plastic system that spreads its effects over every part of the composition. From a unity of idea that reaches from the unity of the materials used to the unity of the general contour’.

This ‘unity of idea’ is absolutely central to Le Corbusier’s work – a desperate attempt to create order in what he perceived to be a fragmented and chaotic world.
