Description

From 1918 onward, Le Corbusier, who was not only an architect but also a painter, was engaged in conceiving and generating the idea of Purism, an activity he undertook in conjunction with the painter Amde Ozenfant. Not surprisingly, paintings were their first tangible products in this field. Their reflections on the relationship between form and colour led to the determination of the so-called large gamma: yellow and red ochres, earthy colours, white, black, ultramarine, and a few mixed colours derived from these. With the term the architectonic colour, Le Corbusier (1887-1965) referred to he profound link between this gamma and architecture. This book is about the way in which he arrived at a distinctly personal architectonic polychromy in the early 1920.
