Yesterday I went to see 'Le Corbusier' Exhibition at the Barbican, it will be on till 24 of May. If you are a fan of his work and the Barbican itself, it is worth a visit. I learnt about his master works around the world, the artists and countries that inspired him, his most famous buildings, furniture he loved and created, etc... a very well curated exhibition in one of my favorites buildings in London, the Barbican centre. Of course I always get lost there, and takes me for ever to find the main entrance to the hall, but still enjoy the architecture and idea of the whole building and housing complex surrounding it. 

This book is huge!! and great!! it shows his letters, skech books, pictures of himself, friends and work, etc...too heavy to bring it home but wonderful anyway!! 

This pictures show some areas of the Barbican. The Centre, was designed by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon in the Brutalist style, and built in the 70's.
