Le Corbusier – 5 architetture
The series of photos taken by Guido Guido of some of Le Corbusier’s projects constitute a reading of the ‘oeuvre’ of the master conceived within an editorial project developed with publisher Einaudi as part of the series ‘I millenni’. This series focuses on major literary works and is directed by Mauro Bersani. This volume was published in 2003 with the title: Le Corbusier, Scritti, by Rosa Tamborrino, Photos by Guido Guidi.
The photos by Guido Guidi are an integral part of the editorial project from the very beginning and contribute to the volume with a reflection on a selection of works. In the context of creation, no illustrative addition would have been coherent, nor any architectural image would have been conceivable. Guido Guidi is the artist who, with a camera, dialogues with the architect – ‘homme de lettre’, as Le Corbusier loved to present himself: both aware of the deep interpretative value of the act of observation. In a volume dedicated to a writer who created his books with collage of texts and images, the work of Guido Guidi draws a portrait of the architect through fragments. Partial visions, nothing other than details that nonetheless, are details that turn out to be enlightening.
