“(…) one only needs to look at his publications, the volumes of his Complete Works, the catalogues of his notebooks and his plastic work to see how drawing was a part, peacefully or violently, with friendship or resistance, of every minute of his waking days. He himself said when he was coming to the end that if ‘drawing can involve art […] art, in contrast, cannot express itself without drawing’, and that ‘there is no need to look further [than the drawing] for the key to my works’.” Juan José Lahuerta, Le Corbusier’s Drawings in Relation to His Symbols,2023
