Le Corbusier’s Architectural Heritage

Join us on December 7, 2016 at 7pm at Albertine Books for a discussion with international architects and historians Jean-Louis Cohen, Peter Eisenman, Mary McLeod, Jorge Otero-Pailos, and Claude Prelorenzo to celebrate Le Corbusier’s Architectural Heritage.

A group of Le Corbusier’s sites has been added to the World Heritage list by Unesco on July 17, 2016. The announcement of the admission of the 17 buildings by Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris — better known as Le Corbusier —, in seven different countries (France, Belgium, Germany, India, Japan, Argentina, and Switzerland) is an unprecedented recognition of modern architecture in its full scale and geographic diversity.

Jean-Louis Cohen, architectural historian and professor at NYU’s Institute of Fine Arts will be joined by architecture specialists including Peter Eisenman, architect, Yale University; Mary McLeod, Columbia University; Jorge Otero-Pailos, director and Professor of Historic Preservation at Columbia University; and Claude Prelorenzo, Friends of the Le Corbusier Foundation.
