Fontana-Giusti Korolija, Gordana (2014) Transgression and Ekphrasis in Le Corbusier's Journey to the East. In: Rice, Louis and Littlefield, David, eds. Transgression: Towards an expanded field of architecture. Critiques . Routledge, London, pp. 57-75. ISBN 978-1-138-81891-0. (KAR id:44862)


Transgression and ekphrasis in Le Corbusier’s Journey to the East explores some lesser known aspects of Charles Edouard Jeanneret’s early trip to the East focusing on the role of traditional arts and architecture that he encountered in the South-East of Europe. The experience, observation and thinking about these arts that subsequently influenced and determined his approach to art and architecture are being explored as a form of transgression and ekphrasis.
