COA Auditorium

The Architecture Program at Georgia Institute of Technology invites you this Wednesday, January 18th at 5:00 pm for a lecture by Dr. Judi Loach, an architectural and cultural historian specializing in 17th and 20th century France, and currently Reader at the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff University. The lecture is open to public and AIA credits are available for attending. Free parking is available outside the building.

During the post-war years Le Corbusier finally succeeded in setting up a studio that could enable him to fulfill his ambition of rigorously treating architectural design as scientific experiment: a studio as laboratory. This lecture will draw on interviews with studio members (mostly now, sadly, no longer alive) and material discovered in private collections to explain how the famous architect used assistants as laboratory technicians, to carry out his design experiments.
