Geoffrey Baker discusses Le Corbusier’s relationship to nature, and the order of form. He describes Le Corbusier’s belief in a harmony between man, nature, and the cosmos. Le Corbusier considered his architecture biological and used concept as an organic proportional system. Baker argues that the nineteenth century equated nature with ornament. Le Corbusier, however, emphasized deep and comprehensive inter-relationship of design and the geometrical structure of nature.
