In his numerous writings, Le Corbusier remained uncharacteristically silent about his early career. This text examines his nascent years as a designer and architect, focusing on the period from 1907 to 1922 - the year he changed his name from Charles Edouard Jeanneret and established his identity as Le Corbusier. The contributors to the book offer an account of Le Corbusier's formative years and the cultural, intellectual and artistic concerns that absorbed him as a young artist in Switzerland and Paris.
