Le Corbusier

Front Cover
Carlton, 2000 - Architecture - 80 pages
Charles Edouard Jeanneret, or as he preferred to call himself, Le Corbusier, was the most revolutionary and influential architect of the twentieth century. Equally reviled and revered, his architectural work ranged from urban planning -- as seen in his plans for La Ville Radieuse -- through mass housing blocks, such as the Unite d'Habitation in Marseilles -- to the masterpieces such as the Ronchamp Chapel and Villa Savoye. In addition, during the 1930s, Le Corbusier along with Charlotte Perriand designed a collection of highly influential pieces of furniture. Many of the pieces they designed, including the leather and tubular steel armchairs and chaise lounge, are still in production today. With over fifty stunning illustrations this is a fascinating and informative survey of Le Corbusier's work.
