The inaugural exhibition, Ando and Le Corbusier: Masters of Architecture, occupies all three floors of exhibition space at Wrightwood 659. It includes more than 100 Le Corbusier drawings, photographs, and models—on loan from institutions including the Fondation Le Corbusier, Paris, and the Art Institute of Chicago—as well as 106 small models of Le Corbusier’s architectural works made by students of Ando, among other objects.
The curator of the Le Corbusier section of the exhibition is Eric Mumford, PhD, Rebecca and John Voyles Professor of Architecture, Washington University in St. Louis. The Ando section is curated by architectural historian Dan Whittaker, PhD, who is working with the Ando studio on the installation of that portion of the exhibition. The exhibition is sponsored by Alphawood Exhibitions LLC.
