Towards a new architecture by Le Corbusier( Book )

352 editions published between 1923 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 3,680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few books of the twentieth century draw as much attention as Le Corbusier's Vers Une Architecture (1923), published in English as Towards a New Architecture (1927). Its slogans and juxtapositions of temples with machines inspired architects to design housing that met the demands of modern life. This new translation preserves the design and voice of the original. A revealing introduction - including discoveries regarding Le Corbusier's manipulation of images - explains how the renowned architect assembled his essay and illuminates the reception of his impassioned views."--Jacket
The city of to-morrow and its planning by Le Corbusier( Book )

207 editions published between 1847 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 2,103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this 1929 classic, the great architect Le Corbusier turned from the design of houses to the planning of cities, surveying urban problems and venturing bold new solutions. The book shocked and thrilled a world already deep in the throes of the modern age. Today it is revered as a work that, quite literally, helped to shape our world. Le Corbusier articulates concepts and ideas he would put to work in his city planning schemes for Algiers, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Geneva, Stockholm, and Antwerp, as well as schemes for a variety of structures from a museum in Tokyo to the United Nations buildings. The influence it exerted on a new generation of architects is now legendary. The City of To-morrow and Its Planning characterizes European cities as a chaos of poor design, inadequate housing, and inefficient transportation that grew out of the unplanned jumble of medieval cities. Developing his thesis that a great modern city can only function on a basis of strict order, Le Corbusier presents two imposing schemes for urban reconstruction -- the "Voisin" scheme for the center of Paris, and his more developed plans for the "City of Three Million Inhabitants," which envisioned, among other things, 60-story skyscrapers, set well apart, to house commercial activities, and residential housing grouped in great blocks of "villas." For those who live in cities as well as anyone interested in their planning, here is a probing survey of the problems of modern urban life and a master architect's stimulating vision of how they might be solved, enlivened by the innovative spirit and passionate creativity that distinguished all of Le Corbusier's work

Le Corbusier, the noble savage : toward an archaeology of modernism by Adolf Max Vogt( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and French and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vogt's investigation of LC's early life and education not only reveals important, previously unacknowledged influences on specific projects such as the League of Nations headquarters and the Villa Savoye, but also suggests why LC throughout his career preferred to lift buildings above the ground, to give them the appearance of "floating." This tendency had decisive consequences for buildings associated with the modern movement and continues to influence architecture today

Le Corbusier : homme de lettres by M. Christine Boyer( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and French and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On his French identity card, legendary architect Le Corbusier listed his profession as "homme de lettres" (man of Letters). Celebrated for his architecture, Le Corbusier also wrote more than fifty books, hundreds of articles, and thousands of letters. Le Corbusier, Homme de Lettres is the first in-depth study of Le Corbusier as a writer as well as an architect. Featuring more than two hundred archival images of his writings, paintings, and photographs, this groundbreaking book examines Le Corbusier's many writing projects from 1907 to 1947, as well as his letters written to two mentors: Charles L'Eplattenier and William Ritter. Author M. Christine Boyer focuses on the development of his writing style as it morphed from romantic prose to aphorisms and telegraphic bulletins. For each of his books, Le Corbusier was meticulous about the design of the page layout, the form of the type, the impact of the ideas, and even the promotional material. As a man of letters, Le Corbusier expected to contribute to the cultural atmosphere of the twentieth century. Le Corbusier, Homme de Lettres shows for the first time how his voluminous output--books, diaries, letters, sketchbooks, travel notebooks, lecture transcriptions, exposition catalogs, journal articles--reflects not just a compulsion to write, but a passion for advancing his ideas about the relationship between architecture, urbanism, and society in a new machine age."--Page 4 of cover
