Le Corbusier por Pierre Chenal

En 1930 André Bloc, director de la revista Architecture d’Aujourd’hui creada en 1929, se propone difundir masivamente en toda Europa la moderna arquitectura Francesa. Con este propósito, se contacta con el cineasta Belga Pierre Chenal y lo interesa en la producción de un trabajo cinematográfico que muestre los avances en las nuevas técnicas constructivas,  la espacialidad y luminosidad de la “nueva arquitectura”.

De este acuerdo surgen tres documentales que se exhiben por primera vez en Paris en mayo de 1931: Batir, L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui y Chantes Trois. Los guiones son elaborados por Chenal y Le Corbusiercon la colaboración de Robert Mallet Stevens, y fueron musicalizados por el hermano de Le Corbusier, Albert Jeanneret.


El documental L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui muestra imágenes  de la iglesia Notre Dame du Raincy (1923) de Auguste Perret, la Rue Mallet Stevens (1926) de Robert Mallet Stevens, y varias obras de Le Corbusier: la ciudad Frugés en Pessac (1925), la villa Stein en Garches (1925), la casa Church en Ville Avray (1928) y la villa Savoye en Poissy (1929). El film preconiza particularmente la “promenade architecturale”, expresada en la rampa en la Villa Saboye, y a Le Corbusier subiendo la escalera hacia la terraza. El documental finaliza con el propio Le Corbusier exponiendo nuevamente su trabajo del plan Voisin.

El video que acompaña al presente texto, publicado por el Canadian Centre for Architecture, muestra los últimos 10 minutos del documental L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui, que en su origen tenía 18 minutos de duración. En este video parcial se exhiben las obras de Le Corbusier mencionadas en el párrafo anterior.
