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 "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 "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
