Review quote

'the man who designed the 20th century - [Le Corbusier] arguably had more of an influence on the form of the modern world than any other architect ...You couldn't make a book like this about just any architect. - Beyond the architecture, reveals a great deal about the man himself. - It all points to a life lived enviably fully.' The Guardian online 'The impact of all the illustrations is undoubtedly fascinating - a real joy [ - ] to browse through - conveys the experience of a day at a really well organised archive.' Building Design, July 2008 'formidable and wide-ranging - Le Corbusier Le Grand is a feast. - Every page is dense with ideas. - a source book for the modern world.' Jonathan Meades, News Statesman
