Lee Ufan invites spectators to engage in a silent and peaceful dialogue with his works. After a stay at the Couvent de la Tourette, the artist immersed himself in the spirit of the place along with Le Corbusier’s architecture. The corpus of works he proposes us echoes the convent architecture and holds a new dialogue in the continuity of the ones opened by previous artists invited in La Tourette, among which were François Morellet and Anish Kapoor.

Le Corbusier was born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret in 1887 and died in 1965. He is one of the most important representants of the modern movement with, for example, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropuis, Alvar Aalto and Theo van Doesburg. Installed in Paris since 1917, he participates to the creation of the Esprit nouveau, an art and architecture magazine in which he uses the pseudonym of Le Corbusier. After the WWII, he proposes his "unités d'habitation" (habitation units) and realises Marseille's Cité radieuse.
Great theoretician, he maintains his publications with le Modulor (1950), presentation of modern architecture.
