Architect, city planner, painter, interior designer, writer, editor, photographer and amateur film-maker. Le Corbusier was a multidisciplinary artist who amazed the world with his creative power and unconventional ideas. Through 200 objects illustrating the full dimensions of his creative processes, the exhibition Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes explores the many facets of an artist regarded today as a key figure in 20th-century architecture.

The result is a truly extraordinary experience, the most complete exhibition devoted to the architect in our country in the last twenty-five years. This comprehensive retrospective traces Le Corbusier's life and work over a sixty-year career in which he constantly observed, imagined and created landscapes: architectural landscapes, domestic landscapes and found object landscapes.

Organised by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) of New York and featuring many pieces loaned by the Fondation Le Corbusier in Paris, the exhibition includes not only models, paintings, plans and photographs, but also four recreations of rooms, complete with their original furniture. The show features several panoramic photographs taken by Richard Pare of some of the architect's most outstanding projects.

Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes. Place: CaixaForum Madrid (Paseo del Prado, 36). Dates: from 11 June to 12 October 2014.
