The exhibition ‘Le Corbusier-architect of the book’ at the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Centre has launched the museum’s temporary exhibition space.
The exhibition presented Le poème de l’angle droit (Poem of the right angle), written and designed by Le Corbusier in 1955, considered to be an outstanding example of the Livre d’Artiste genre.
…the two rhythms
which regulate our destiny:
A sun rises
A sun sets
A sun rises again
Le Corbusier, A. Milieu (Environment-Green)
The structure of the exhibition was dictated by the structure of the poem, outlined by the architect on the opening page.
A rigid arrangement of walls formed a composition centralized within the exhibition space, juxtaposed by a semi circular partition, which concealed a projection room with a film about the architect.
