By Michelle Fisher

Shortly before his death in August 1965, Le Corbusier began to collate two decades of his writings, which resulted in Mise au point (1966). The architect outlines what Charles Jencks later characterized as the “tragic view” of his career, lamenting a life devoted to the study of housing that was, in Le Corbusier’s eyes, underappreciated by the French government and the wider public. Shunned in the postwar rebuilding of Paris, Le Corbusier only ever partially achieved his Radiant City in the form of the controversial Unité d’Habitation housing block at Marseilles (1947-52).


  • LA Forum Presents: shoptalk with RAC Design Build

    Los Angeles | Dates: 07 Aug, 2014
    This year’s “On the Map” series turns a spotlight not on the end products of finished buildings, but on the processes by which design is achieved. The shoptalk events invite designers to reveal the methods of their architectural making and building, spanning a continuum from the high-tech digital on one end, to the analog and hand-crafted on the other. Exposing this range of activities, shoptalk invites you to tour the facilities where the magic happens and engage in the discussion about what it is that architects do.

  • Cocktails & Conversations - Alan Brake & Ken Smith, ASLA

    New York | Dates: 15 Aug, 2014
    How do you spend Friday evening? Do you join those who jam NYC’s cultural institutions or those crowds over populating film theaters? When it hosts a pair of NYC's most interesting and provocatively creative thinkers, the AIA Center for Architecture—one of NYC's premiere cultural institutions—can certainly lift your spirits. This series of dialogues about design joins an architect with a critic, journalist, curator or architectural historian to discuss current architecture design issues. Friday night is not “Friday Night” without the appropriate beverage. We’ll provide a custom-crafted cocktail—one inspired by the architect's work and created especially for this event. Join us in growing the tradition of Delight Night in New York's Weekend Cultural Scene—Blight Night it is not.
