Traballando con Le Corbusier por Jerzy Soltan en arquia/filmoteca

08 OCTUBRE 2014 / FILMOTECA

Para esta semana, suxerímosvos a conferencia de Jerzy Soltan (1913-2005), arquitecto polonés que traballou no estudio de Le Corbusier, pronunciada en 1987 no COAC. Accede á súa visualización en arquia/filmoteca.

Na conferencia, Jerzy Soltan móstranos a figura de Le Corbusier dende un punto de vista humano e introdúcenos nos proxectos en que colaborou co arquitecto. Preséntanos temas do día a día do taller, as diferentes técnicas de expresión utilizadas na concepción dos proxectos, como a maqueta ou o carbón, e a relación de Le Corbusier co seu equipo.

«The process of returning home revealed quite a lot about Le Corbusier’s character. If the work went well, if he enjoyed his own sketching and was sure of what he intended to do, then he forgot about the hour and might be home late for dinner. But if things did not go too well, if he felt uncertain of his ideas and unhappy with his drawings, then Corbu became jittery. He would fumble with his wristwatch – a small, oddly feminine contraption, far too small for his big paw – and finally say, grudgingly, “C’est difficile, l’architecture,” toss the pencil or charcoal stub on the drawing, and slink out, as if ashamed to abandon the project and me – and us – in a predicament». Jerzy Soltan

«Mais mon cher Soltan, il faut que ce soit beau». This remark, of course, destroyed my argument. I was demolished, demolished but also delighted; Le Corbusier had offered me, openly, aboveboard, a marvelous gift that for years I had been eyeing secretly, from a distance. «Il faut que ce soit beau» – it has to be beautiful. To have the guts not only to speak of visual quality but to put one’s thought so bluntly!’ Jerzy Soltan
