André Bruyère and Fernand Léger. Project for a Village Polychrome, Biot, France. Perspective of a guest villa with terrace, 1953.
“The Village Polychrome project of 1952-1953, was developed by the architect André Bruyère (1912-1998) in collaboration with the artist Fernand Léger (1881-1955). The aesthetic of this project resembles that of Le Corbusier in his late career. Free forms, organically conceived structures, and irregular distribution of buildings according to colour constituted an alternative to the dominant functionalist thinking of the time. For this project, Léger envisioned “a painting on the scale of the landscape.” Originally commissioned by an industrialist who was plagued thereafter by financial troubles, this synthesis of architecture and painting was never realized.” via
