Towards a new architecture by Le Corbusier( Book )

340 editions published between 1923 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 3,664 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

Le Corbusier and the continual revolution in architecture by Charles Jencks( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking into account recent scholarship and new theories of architectural change, noted architectural historian Charles Jencks traces the personal and professional development of Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, who would be known to the world as Le Corbusier, beginning with his family background and early training in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, where he cultivated a regionalist style that would be the first of many aesthetic identities to be exploited and then shed throughout his long career. Soon after leaving La Chaux-de-Fonds for Paris, Jeanneret, in association with the Purist painter Amedee Ozenfant, gained fame in the 1920s under the nom de plume Le Corbusier, publishing the journal L'Esprit Nouveau and four seminal Modernist tracts: Towards a New Architecture, The City of Tomorrow, The Decorative Art of Today, and La Peinture Moderne (Modern Painting). Jencks demonstrates the influence of these classic texts by way of the architect's major projects of the period: Villa La Roche, Workers' Housing at Pessac, the Plan Voisin for Paris, Villa Stein, Villa Savoye, and the steel furniture, including the famed grand confort and chaise longue." "Le Corbusier and the Continual Revolution in Architecture presents over two hundred illustrations including architectural drawings, plans, and photographs, as well as paintings, sketches, and publication facsimiles. With this illuminating collection of images and his revealing and provocative text, Charles Jencks has produced a compelling and comprehensive analysis of the twentieth-century master who continually stayed well ahead of his followers to reinvent the art of architecture over and over again."--Jacket

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

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 227 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
