Adventures in synaesthesia. Le Corbusier and Edgar Varese

Dig this collaboration between the architect and the musician. Of course, Varese produced the sound for Le Corbusier’s Phillips Pavilion at the Brussels 1958 World Exposition. This was one of the first forays into synaesthetic design including architecture, projection and sound where the audience could move through the spaces during performance. Le Corbusier was working on Chandigargh during the pavilion’s construction, leaving oversight to his engineer Xenakis, who shortly after shifted his efforts to music.
