Witness the evolution of Le Corbusier’s mastery over space and time, and his influence on the city we call home today.
Le Corbusier 101 at the National Design Centre Singapore aims to make the timeless works of the master architect accessible to all, especially in this period of limited travel.
The exhibition presents 101 models of Le Corbusier’s works from the private collection of RT+Q Architects, with furniture and prints from the private collection of Manuel Der Hagopian and Peter Tay Studio.
The physical models are the work of interns at RT+Q. Through the years, it has been a ‘tradition’ for interns to spend the first week of their internship building a model of a Le Corbusier work. The aim is to acquaint the young student with the design ideas of arguably the most versatile architect of the 20th century.
The collection of Le Corbusier’s works form priceless lessons for interns and architects alike – today and the future.
RT+Q Architects Pte Ltd was founded in Singapore in 2003 by Mr Rene Tan and Mr TK Quek. Since its founding, the practice has been exploring architecture as an inter-disciplinary craft that combines both the elusive beauty of art and the rigors of building technology.
