title Geometric and graphical analysis of the pyramids of Le Corbusier (1950-1957)
source SIGRADI 2015 [Proceedings of the 19th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - vol. 1 - ISBN: 978-85-8039-135-0] Florianópolis, SC, Brasil 23-27 November 2015, pp. 177-182.
summary This paper addresses the issue about the geometrical properties and physical measures of the pyramids that Le Corbusier planned throughout his career; while approaching these bodies through his drawings and perspectives. This aims to decipher the objective role of mathematics, and the subjectivity of the visual-perceptive in his approach to the design process. Le Corbusier, one of the greatest masters of modern architecture, still uses the classical perspective as a tool that allows him to express the pictorial nature of his compositions and to demonstrate his aspirations about shape.
