We first set foot on the Weissenhof estate in June 2015 with the intent to learn more about its architectural statement and past as a Deutscher Werkbund exhibition back in 1927. It soon felt like we were repeating what was already known about this place: the functional forms, the use of colour and light within the Le Corbusier building. …
… This is why we decided to publish a selection of contact sheets in the form of a photo zine to make our process of looking at the architectural interiors/exteriors visible. By focusing on three alternative approaches which capture the architecture of Le Corbusier‘s duplex and its visitors, the exhibition CORBUSIER REVISITED and its accompanying art zine do not solely illustrate the exterior appearance of this estate, but much rather point out subjective experiences and encounters during several visits to Le Corbusier‘s heritage and its surroundings.
CORBUSIER REVISITED is based on the book "Thanks for the View, Mr. Mies, Lafayette Park, Detroit 2012".
