The Registro Aurelia Italiano's Spring meeting in 2008 (I think) was based in Chaux de Fonds and during that meeting we visited various houses either designed by Le Corbusier or modified to his design. Fascinating. And then the following year there was an exhibition at the Barbican in London celebrating his portfolio of work.

About ten years ago I went to an exhibition to celebrate the work of modernist architect Wells Coats – this was at the reopening of the restored Isokon building in Hampstead that he had designed in the 1930s. Wells Coats was a well known Lambda owner. I was in the company of John Turner and at the exhibition we were delighted to find a book about Coats that include a description of him giving Le Corbusier a lift in the Lambda. Le Corbusier was reputed to have exclaimed: “Ah, a Lancia – better tighten seat belts!” This was of course at a time when only in airplanes would you have expected to have seat belts.

The photo of the man sitting on the Lambda running board is the classic picture of Wells Coates. It would be good to have a better copy of this - the only one I have also is divided into three sections.
