Le Corbusier’s Fourth Dimension shows the free visual practice of the world renowned architect Le Corbusier, with drawings, paintings, tapestries and objects. The Danish artist Jakob Kolding engages in the exhibition and mediates between Le Corbusier, CoBrA and the public with the installation Corbulation. The exhibition can be seen from 8 October 2017 on.

‘Le Corbusier’s fourth dimension’ is an exhibition of the visual art practice of world-famous architect Le Corbusier. The exhibition contains drawings, paintings, sculptures and tapestries, some of which have never been shown before. The title is derived from a quote by Le Corbusier, where he compared his artistic process with a journey into a ‘miraculous fourth dimension’. The title also indicates a world beyond the established image of this influential and controversial architect and city builder, because although Le Corbusier’s architecture is usually seen as the very essence of rationalism and functionalism, it is apparent from his visual practice that he also gave space to the free experiment an the irrational in his practise.
