Atlantic Coast: nature as inspiration

Benton, Tim (2013). Atlantic Coast: nature as inspiration. In: Cohen, Jean-Louis ed. Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes. New York: Museum of Modern Art, pp. 162–167.


Discusses the way Le Corbusier conceived of landscape as a metaphor of creativity. His vacations spent on the Atlantic coast, on the Bassin d'Arcachon, inspired not only a series of paintings and photgoraphs, but also a major shift in his approach to natural materials.
