One of the most important figures in late twentieth-century music, avant-garde composer Iannis Xenakis originally trained as an engineer and was also known as an architect, developing iconic designs while working with Le Corbusier in the 1950s.
Published to accompany Iannis Xenakis: Composer, Architect, Visionary, Drawing Papers 88 comprises samples of Xenakis’s pioneering graphic notation, architectural plans, compelling preparatory mathematical renderings, and pre-compositional sketches, all created between 1953 and 1984. Important scholarly texts explore the fundamental role of drawing in Xenakis’s exceptionally interdisciplinary career.
