| One of the most outstanding classic books of architecture: The Poem of the Right Angle as a facsimile of the original 1955 edition
Between 1947 and 1953, Le Corbusier (1887–1965) produced a series of lithographs and poems that can be regarded as an artistic realization of his worldview. The works have been arranged in such a way that seven rows, one upon the other, result in a picture wall, an iconostasis. Each row is dedicated to a specific topic, ranging from the environment and mental and physical elements to the right angle, with which human beings establish their own order.The two-part publication places a volume with accompanying works, studies, and texts alongside a meticulously reproduced facsimile of the original lithographs and the poème from 1955. The appendix includes the text of the poem itself and translation into German. Le Corbusier once stated that his buildings first became possible on the basis of his artistic work, thus the cycle also reveals the architectural achievements of the greatest architect of the 20th century.Exhibition schedule: Architekturmuseum der Technischen Universität München, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, June 21–September 2, 2012
