Geoffrey Baker: Le Corbusier: Nature & the order of form (March 17, 1986)01:09:00

Ray Kappe introduces Geoffrey Baker.

Geoffrey Baker discusses Le Corbusier’s belief in a harmony between man, nature, and the cosmos. Le Corbusier considered his architecture biological and used the module as an organic proportional system.

Baker argues that the nineteenth century equated nature with ornament. Le Corbusier, however, emphasized the deep and comprehensive inter-relationship between design and the geometrical structure of nature.
