He divides his time between Paris and New York, where he is the Sheldon H. Solow Professor in the History of Architecture at the Institute of Fine Arts of NYU University. Tim Benton, a highly regarded Le Corbusier scholar, is a Lecturer in the History of Art, Open University, Milton Keynes, England.
    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
