SPECIAL ISSUE: 2016 NO. 1

Theme of the issue

Rethinking Le Corbusier: Urban Design and History

Summary of the subject and premise

It is generally believed that Le Corbusier’s urban planning made a break with the past, and that the public spaces designed by him had nothing to do with anything that existed before – a conviction fostered by both the innovative character of his proposals and by the proliferation in his manifestos of watchwords that mask any evocation of the past. However, in his writings, Le Corbusier often mentioned the powerful analogy that exists between the architecture of other times and the logic of modern production; and although this causal relationship has often been demonstrated with respect to his architecture, it has rarely been extended to the public space. This special issue of the Journal of Architecture and Urbanism aims to fill that gap by systematically analysing Le Corbusier’s relationship with the history of urbanism. Articles may focus on his reflections on the public space of earlier times, the influence that this had on his own output, the relationship of his proposals with the pre-existing city, and other subjects that clarify the affinity that he established with the past within urban design. They may deal with any period of his career and training, but should offer new perspectives on his public spaces and their relationship with history.
