Works submitted to the nomination must deal primarily with aspects of Le Corbusier’s life and/or work that have not previously been researched in sufficient detail or, in the case of areas already studied, should put forward original approaches (multidisciplinary, comparative, transversal, etc.). All aspects of Le Corbusier’s life and/or work and its reception may be envisaged: the built work, unrealized architectural or urban projects, the furniture, his work in the visual arts – painting, drawing, tapestry, exhibitions, etc. – or his written work, literary or theoretical. These include any research tending to further knowledge of Le Corbusier the man and understanding of his legacy to us.
This call for proposals is aimed at young researchers (maximum age: 40).
In justifying their intended use of the Foundation’s aid, candidates should specify how they see such aid as essential for the specific demands entailed in disseminating their research (by publication, translation, etc.).
The file should include the following items:
– the research as a published or provisional document : one printed copy and a digitized one;
– a curriculum vitae;
– a list of works already completed;
– two letters of recommendation from researchers, lecturers, art historians, architects or recognized figures.
 
Candidates must also inform the Foundation of any aid or award requested or obtained from other public or private organizations in connection with the application.
The research may be preferably written either in French, English, Italian or Spanish. For other languages, an abstract in French or English is requested.
The maximum amount of the grant to be awarded is 10,000 €.
All applications in response to this call for proposals should reach the Foundation before 30th June 2016.
Results are due to be published by 1st October 2016
The laureate might be invited to deliver a public conference to present his research during the year 2017.
