Le Corbusier by way of Cardinale

Swiss-French architect, designer, and urban planner Le Corbusier (1887-1965) was a pioneer of modern architecture. Roberto Cardinale, who is a local sculptor, marks his return to Patina Gallery with his newest work, Chapelle Notre-Dame du Haut (Our Lady of the Heights), which was modeled on the Le Corbusier-designed Roman Catholic Chapelle Notre-Dame du Haut in Ronchamp, France.

Eileen Gray’s Masterpiece in the French Riviera, No Longer Overshadowed by Le Corbusier

PASADENA, Calif. — Vandalism, murder, squatting, military base, decay — these are the many scandals that plagued E-1027, a home in the French Riviera designed by the architect and furniture designer Eileen Gray. The most famous of these incidents involved a naked Le Corbusier, who defiled the minimalist, color-blocked walls in E-1027 while staying as a house guest. He painted lewd cubist murals to mock Gray’s bisexuality and to undermine her creative vision as one of the few women working in the architectural field.
