Towards a new architecture by Le Corbusier( Book )

395 editions published between 1923 and 2017 in 21 languages and held by 3,897 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 )

165 editions published between 1847 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 2,048 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

Looking at city planning by Le Corbusier( Book )

"Les villes modernes sont menacées d'asphyxie. Les poussières industrielles, la densité de la circulation automobile, la fatigue consécutive à leurs disproportions les rendent peu habitables. Seule une refonte d'ensemble évitera que l'existence y devienne bientôt impossible. Dans "Manière de penser l'urbanisme", le grand architecte et urbaniste Le Corbusier aborde le probléme de front. Il indique les moyens de transformer nos rues inhospitalières, d'aménager de zones de stationnement et des espaces verts, remédier à la crise endémique de logement. Il précise les conditions nécessaires à l'établissement de cités radieuses où, renouant avec la joie de vivre, puisse s'épanouir l'homme contemporain

The modulor; a harmonious measure to the human scale, universally applicable to architecture and mechanics by Le Corbusier( Book )

26 editions published between 1954 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le Corbusier published Le Modulor in 1948, followed by Modulor 2 in 1955. These works were first published in English as The Modulor in 1954 and Modulor 2 (Let the User Speak Next) in 1958. The Modulor is an anthropometric scale of proportions devised by the Swiss-born French architect Le Corbusier (1887-965). It was developed as a visual bridge between two incompatible scales, the imperial and the metric system. It is based on the height of a man with his arm raised. It was used as a system to set out a number of Le Corbusier's buildings and was later codified into two books

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

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

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 456 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, the creative search : the formative years of Charles-Edouard Jeanneret by Geoffrey H Baker( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Geoffrey Baker extends the survey of Le Corbusier's architecture in his acclaimed Le Corbusier: An analysis of form to chart the way in which Le Corbusier developed his creative approach. Baker concentrates on the way a designer's mind works. He extends the analytical skills used to explain Le Corbusier's architecture into a detailed analysis of those vital early sketchbooks that form the core of Le Corbusier's education. For the first time in a single volume, Baker provides comprehensive documentation of sketches in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Italy and on the journey to the East, including extensive English translations of Le Corbusier's notes. This assemblage of some of Le Corbusier's finest sketches is closely related to the way he designed his first homes, providing a remarkably lucid and accessible record of the working research method of a master
