The Barbican’s celebration of Le Corbusier highlighted his connection between the arts with a full programme of concerts, films and talks to accompany the exhibition, including a day presented by the BBC Symphony Orchestra dedicated to the composer Iannis Xenakis who worked as an architect in Le Corbusier’s studio. The exhibition also offered a unique opportunity to see the influence of Le Corbusier’s architecture and ideas on the Barbican complex, designed by Chamberlin, Powell and Bonn in the late 1950s.
