World Premiere

Fascinated since childhood with the work of Le Corbusier, director Gilles Coudert decided to seek out artists who, like him, had been greatly influenced by the work of the celebrated architect, known as the inventor of the unité d’habitation, a theoretical reflection around community living. Born in Firminy and having lived in the largest apartment block designed by Le Corbusier, Coudert early developed a sensitivity to the structures around him that challenge the relationship between aesthetics and function. Offering the views of many artists from various disciplines, this documentary highlights the influence Le Corbusier’s work had on an entire generation of creators.
