Description:

Alongside Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe and Louis Kahn, Le Corbusier was one of the great architects of the 20th century. In this monograph the author approaches his oeuvre from a new and unconventional angle. He analyzes in great detail Le Corbusier's designs to reveal the geometric structures which give each building its unique sense of harmony. Through informative texts and fascinating drawings, the relationship between the logical, constructive and intuitive dimensions in Le Corbusier's architecture emerges anew.
