In 'Vers une Architecture', published in 1923, Le Corbusier equates the pure forms of the machine with the pure forms of the Parthenon to illustrate his view of architecture as a question of mass rather than facades, and that machines are highly architectural. First published in English in 1927, it is the most influential architectural manifesto of modern times.

'The only piece of architectural writing that will be classed among the essential literature of the 20th century.' Reyner Banham
