Team10 out of CIAM: Sobre el papel de Le Corbusier. Identificacion y legado

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionScientificpeer-review


Albeit different versions of Team 10 birth and dissolution of CIAM exist, all of them coincide in its disruptive nature. This article tries to prove, far from the canonical representation of the end of CIAM and by studying the documents that went through Le Corbusier’s atelier in Paris; that many of the ideas of Team 10 were already present inside CIAM and that Team 10’s creation had the support of several of CIAM’s founding members. It is especially important Le Corbusier’s personal backing. Le Corbusier, who through letters and drawings understood very soon that it was the time to step aside and give way to the new generation. In fact, it was vital to the creation of Team 10, without whom it would not have been possible.
