Twenty-one years since the last Le Corbusier exhibition in Britain, the RIBA trust has opened a new one in a rather amazing space. Never before opened to visitors, the Crypt of Edwin Lutyen’s Metropolitan Cathedral is the site. The intent, to push thought of Le Corbusier beyond the obvious connections to brutalist architecture and remind of his work as a thinker, painter and writer. As Wallpaper points out, while there is potential there, his legacy is sure hard to break.
The exhibition remains open until January 18, 2009.
Thanks to them there are some great shots of the show and related material. More of Le Corbusier in Liverpool after the jump.
