Цитаты Ле Корбюзье


„Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light.“

—  Le Corbusier
Context: Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light. Our eyes are made to see forms in light; light and shade reveal these forms; cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the great primary forms which light reveals to advantage; the image of these is distinct and tangible within us without ambiguity. It is for this reason that these are beautiful forms, the most beautiful forms. Everybody is agreed to that, the child, the savage and the metaphysician.

„The age of personal statues is gone.“

—  Le Corbusier
Context: The age of personal statues is gone. No personal statues shall be erected in the city or parks of Chandigarh. The city is planned to breathe the new sublimated spirit of art. Commemoration of persons shall be confined to suitably placed bronze plaques.

„A hundred times I have thought: New York is a catastrophe, and fifty times: it is a beautiful catastrophe.“

—  Le Corbusier
