The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is organizing the largest exhibition on Le Corbusier to ever show in New York, scheduled to open June 9 of this year. "Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes" will be curated by modern architecture scholar Jean-Louis Cohen, and it will encompass Corbusier's contributions to architecture, interior design, and city planning, as well as his written and photographic endeavors. According to MoMA, the exhibition will reveal "the ways in which Le Corbusier observed and imagined landscapes throughout his career, using all the artistic techniques at his disposal, from his early watercolors of Italy, Greece, and Turkey, to his sketches of India, and from the photographs of his formative journeys to the models of his large-scale projects."
