LC/GR Le Corbusier and Greece
Panayotis Tournikiotis<http://iktinos2.arch.ntua.gr/english/staff_en/StaffDetailsEn.asp?code=Tournikiotis> (National Technical University, Athens)

Le Corbusier traveled in Greece twice and referred to the Parthenon and the Acropolis of Athens in most of his writings. The discussion will focus on his third journey to Greece and the perpetual recourse to the ideal example of antiquity in his quest for rational modernity.
