An exhibition of the work at PM Gallery & House in Ealing, west London, explores the way in which Pare approaches his subject, taking care to reveal the architecture in its best light. Photo: Villa Savoye, Poissy, 1929-30.
Pare uses a wide range of technical approaches, combining conventional film and a large-format view camera with the latest advances in digital image-making. Photo: Le Corbusier’s studio, rue Nungesser-et-Coli, Paris, 1931-34
Swiss-born architect Corbusier's tower blocks, such as the Unite d'Habitation in Marseilles, remain some of his most recognisable works.
This is the view from the terrace roof of the Unite d’Habitation.
The hilltop chapel of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp was completed in 1955.
Le Corbusier has been described as the greatest architect of the 20th Century, yet his work was not without controversy, some seeing his plans for city development as being too extreme.
Yet his influence on generations of architects can be seen in many cities across the world. Photo: The hypostyle room in the Assembly Building, Chandigarh, Punjab, India.
Konstantin Melnikov was a Russian modernist architect. One of his most significant buildings was the house he built for himself, which also served as an experimental studio.
Living Laboratory: Richard Pare on Le Corbusier and Konstantin Melnikov is on show until 11 May 2014.
