Archival Research Analysis: Le Corbusier’s Strasbourg project 1962-64 (Jullian Archives:C atholic University, Chile)
MetadataShow full item record
This paper attempts to review a series of archival drawings of Le Corbusier’s Strasbourg project as located in the Jullian Archives at the Catholic University Chile. Guillaume Jullian de la Fuente (1931-2008) was Le Corbusier’s primary assistant to many of his later projects between 1960-1965. These drawings and sketches have neither been formally analyzed nor published to date. It is postulated that by carrying out an analysis of the initial drawings and conceptual sketches of selected projects that Le Corbusier initiated during 1962-65, the research will provide a concise language to further analyze Le Corbusier’s almost diagrammatic conceptual project during the same period which according to Jullian de la Fuente was termed the 'Potato Building' typology.
