Glenn Walls. Humanising Le Corbusier. Plan Voisin for Paris. 2014

The Plan Voisin is a solution for the center of Paris, drawn between 1922 and 1925 by Le Corbusier. 
The plan for 1925 seems to be a direct transposition of the diagram of Contemporary City for three million 
drawn in 1922. Included are buildings available in a regular orthogonal grid occupying a very important part 
of the right bank of the Seine. The space is highly structured with two new traffic arteries pierced through 
the city, one on the east-west, the other on a north-south. Their role is not limited to the organization of 
Paris, as were the advances of Haussmann: they pass through the fortifications and the suburban area. They 
have the ambition to link the capital to the four corners of the country, the major French and European cities. 
The crossroads at the intersection of these two avenues is the center of the plan, the center of the city 
in central France. (http://densityatlas.org/casestudies/profile.php?id=99)

Shelter (Aboriginal Flag). Le Corbusier, Unité d’Habitation ( Version 1). Perspex on wood. 2012. 19 x 29 cms (study for larger work)

The Australian Aboriginal Flag is a flag that represents Indigenous Australians. It was designed in 1971 by Aboriginal artist Harold Thomas, who is descended from the Luritjapeople of Central Australia and holds Intellectual propertyrights in the flag’s design. The flag was originally designed for the land rights movement, and it became a symbol of the Aboriginal people ofAustralia.

The symbolic meaning of the flag colours (as stated by Harold Thomas) is:

  • Black: Represents the Aboriginal people of Australia
  • Red: Represents the red earth, the red ochre and a spiritual relation to the land
  • Yellow: Represents the Sun, the giver of life and protector
