Le Corbusier

While efficiency and stability are obviously essential when it comes to architecture I do believe that aesthetics play a key role in the greatness of structures as well. Bringing up the idea of “Art for Art’s Sake” meaning that the use of creativity does not need any justification, I found it intriguing to hear such a concept. While beauty at times may not necessarily be the purpose, and not always need to be addressed, I think that through artistry a sense of truth and understanding can be portrayed. Not only for a specific structure but the architect himself/herself, a form of expressing themselves whether it is recognized or not. This plays along with Reconfiguration in the sense that rearranging elements according to current influences is what creates modernism.
