Trabajando con Le Corbusier por Jerzy Soltan na arquia/cinemateca

08 OCTUBRE 2014 / FILMOTECA

Para esta semana, sugerimos-lhe a conferência de Jerzy Soltan (1913-2005), arquiteto polaco que trabalhou no atelier de Le Corbusier, realizada em 1987 no COAC. Veja o filme na arquia/cinemateca.

Na conferência, Jerzy Soltan mostra-nos a figura de Le Corbusier, de um ponto de vista humano, e os projetos em que colaborou com o arquiteto. Apresenta-nos temas do dia a dia do atelier, as diferentes técnicas de expressão utilizadas na conceção dos projetos, tais como a maquete ou o carvão, e a relação entre Le Corbusier e a sua equipa.

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

É possível ver este filme na arquia/cinemateca graças à colaboração e autorização do Colégio de Arquitetos da Catalunha.
