Review:

" As a subject, Le Corbusier looms so large that one wonders how to get a handle on him. He has greatly influenced design vocabulary, construction technology, housing, urban design, the interpretation of the machine - indeed, just about every aspect of architecture. His direct influence is still felt today; it fact, it is growing as his design vocabulary is becoming the basis of a new academic architecture .... This book ... systematically reviews Le Corbusier's buildings and writings, and should easily become the standard reference of its kind - the ideal companion to the multivolume set of Le Corbusier's complete works. It surveys his development from his early education through the various stages of his career. The book is a thorough piece of scholarship, each of its chapters a major essay." - "AIA Journal" & quot; As a subject, Le Corbusier looms so large that one wonders how to get a handle on him.
