In 1918, painter Amédée Ozenfant and Le Corbusier established the journal L’Esprit Nouveau, a publication advocating pure, geometric form in art and architecture.

The material for the image is derived from a pamphlet for Corbusier’s lecture series in 1920.
Montry is a small town outside of Paris. Their refusal to sell land to Disneyland Paris set Montry apart from its neighbors who ceded public land to new development. Many thanks to Galerie Itinerrance.
