The best 5 aphorisms of Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier is probably one of the most important and remembered designers in history, Le Corbusier’s aphorisms are almost as famous as his works. Phrases and thoughts that despite the fact that decades have passed since they were written remain incredibly relevant.

 

Perhaps not everyone knows that Le Corbusier is a pseudonym coined by Amedee Ozenfant in the fall of 1920, at first used only to sign architectural articles on Esprit Nouveau. A reminder of the childhood home portrait that reminded our protagonist of the master L’Eplattenier, known to most just as Le Corbu, the rest is history.

 

A pioneer of the new architecture at the turn of the century, a visionary composer of timeless designs, Le Corbusier ‘s aphorisms are indelible in the minds of every design enthusiast and beyond. 

 

We have selected five of them for you, an excerpt of his thoughts to reflect both on the world of design but basically also on society.

 

  • Architecture is the skillful, rigorous and magnificent play of volumes assembled in light.

 

  • Space, light, order. These are things that men need, just as they need bread or a place to sleep.

 

  • The decorator’s art is to do in other people’s homes what they would never dream of doing in their own.

 

  • A house is a dwelling machine.

 

  • Form follows function.
