Product description

First published in France in 1943 and translated for English-speaking readers in 1961, this work presents advice and commentary from the master of modernism for young architects-to-be. In chapters ranging from "Disorder" to "The Construction of Dwellings" to "A Research Workshop", Le Corbusier discusses his views on architectural history and offers opinions on the future of the profession, while touching on his own projects for the Villa Savoye, the Cite Universitaire, and the Radiant City. Topics such as architecture's role in our directionless society; the balance between spiritual values and technical factors; and the importance of space, proportion and colour are explored by this renowned architect, and still resonate today. This reprint of the classic text is a facsimile of the 1961 edition.
