Machines for Living: Le Corbusier and Modern Housing
Monday, September 2, 2013, 1:30 p.m.
The René d' Harnoncourt Exhibition Galleries, sixth floor
Explore how the architect Le Corbusier challenged conventional notions of “home” by advancing a vision of the modern house as a “machine for living” that embraced prefabrication, mass production, technological advancements, new materials, and abstract design.
In conjunction with the exhibition Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
