A Royal Institute of British Architects exhibition, showcasing previously unseen work by Swiss architect and designer Le Corbusier, opens in Liverpool this autumn. Highlights will include a mural painting from Le Corbusier’s office at Rue de Sèveres in Paris, a large-scale model of the Philips Pavilion and film footage shot by Le Corbusier in Arcachon. The exhibition is the centrepiece of Riba’s Le Corbusier season. It will open at The Crypt of Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral before travelling to London’s Barbican Art Gallery in February 2009.
The project, which centres around an updated “WB” shield, aims to lay the groundwork for the company’s future ahead of its centenary in 2023.
The updated international logo is a “true reflection of the Dutch mentality” and is central to a brand strategy based around openness, inventiveness and inclusivity.
The redesign aims to attract “new, younger and more culturally diverse audiences” to the 118-year-old magazine, while avoiding confusion with The Times newspaper.
