Lecture date: 2008-11-28
Le Corbusier gave his only formal lecture in the UK on 18 December 1947, coinciding with the AA‘s centenary year. To commemorate this unique occasion the AA and RIBA have jointly organised this event: a gathering of Le Corbusier experts and respected postwar architects examine the content and context of the lecture, and the impact of his theories within the AA and for a whole generation of postwar British architects.
