Until now, architects who legibly and particularly describes about film and design ‘cinématic’ objects are not more than Robert Mallet-Stevens, Ryoji Suzuki, Bernard Tschumi, Steven Holl and Rem Koolhaas. Recently, a book about Le Corbusier’s admire on films and photographs, " LC Foto, Le Corbusier, Secret Photographer " (2013) has been published by a publisher in Swiss. The book closely exposes unknown his interest on film with his 16mm film clips and photographs he took.Did Corbusier see‘Battleship Potemkin’by Sergei Eisenstein in 1925?
