The Royal Institute of British Architects will be presenting the first major UK exhibition of work by world renowned architect Le Corbusier next week.

As part of Liverpool's European Capital of Culture celebrations, the exhibition will take place at The Crypt, located within the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, near Hope Street in Liverpool city centre.

The exhibition is by Vitra Design Museum in collaboration with the RIBA Trust and the Netherlands Architecture Institute.

The Swiss born architect is believed to have influenced the work of Norman Foster, Frank Gehry, David Chipperfield and Oscar Niemeyer, amongst others, with his iconic buildings in Europe, India, North and South America.

The exhibition will explore Corbusier's unique multi-disciplinary approach to the contemporary environment which saw him fuse art, design, urban planning, architecture and even film into his practise.

'Le Corbusier – The Art of Architecture' will run from 2 October until 18 January next year.
