It is impossible to understand the architecture of the twentieth century and of our own time without first coming to terms with Le Corbusier (18871965). His buildings can be found from Paris to La Plata to the Punjab and his influence has extended over several generations worldwide. (...)

This probing study of Le Corbusiers work explores the interactions of ideas and forms in his individual buildings and in his oeuvre as a whole. By penetrating the design processes of his major buildings it reveals the architects struggle to reconcile the ideal and the practical and to give clients aspirations and societys institutions a suitable symbolic form. It analyses Le Corbusiers phenomenal powers of imaginative synthesis, the recurrent elements of his architectural language, and the multiple levels of meaning in his projects. In turn it shows how this most modern of architects drew inspiration from both nature and the past.

Published in the year of the fiftieth anniversary of Le Corbusiers death, the book has been rigourously rethought, reworked and redesigned to include new scholarship, to integrate the authors research and to extend his insights. (...)

Continuing the standard of the highly praised original edition, this book by eminent and award-winning architectural historian William J R Curtis documents individual projects in detail while also linking them to the architects philosophy, utopian vision and activities as a painter, sculptor and author. It explores Le Corbusiers processes of invention in diverse media while placing his work in the context of the cultural and political predicaments of his time. It demonstrates how the artist transformed his experience of the world into a new architectural vocabulary based upon a limited set of types and elements, and how he gave shape to images and ideas in forms of compelling force.
