Xenakis describes the planning, concept and construction of Le Corbusier’s Electronic Poem (also the name of Varèse’s Poème Électronique that was composed to the space). Using a number of sketches and detailed descriptions the special architectonic and spatial characteristics of the pavilion are presented in which the components of light, colour, image, rhythm, sound and architecture were to be made not only accessible but also offer a sense of organic synthesis to the viewers.
