The significance of drawing and painting in architectural design (as exemplified by Le Corbusier’s sacred architecture)
Languages of publication
Looking at Le Corbusier’s works one cannot fail to notice how his drawings and paintings transformed into architectural projects to become the foundations for new objects, including the sculpted forms of sanctuaries which have a permanent place in the tradition of sacred architecture. He centered his original ideas on visions of his works which he put down on paper in an unconstrained manner as sketches and drawings. Le Corbusier proved that drawing and painting can be used as support for and in collaboration with the architectural design process in pursuit of an architecture that would satisfy the user’s need for aesthetic value and appeal to their senses. He introduced the two into the design process leaving behind abundant documentation.
