Le Corbusier Redrawn: The Houses presents 25 of Le Corbusier s small residential work (self-sufficient and detached singleand double-family houses) through sectional projections (perspectival sections) as well as plans, sections, and elevations. Sectional projections, compared to other types of representation, capture most clearly the relational dynamic among different building elements and therefore express most effectively the architect s design intentions.

Review quote

"Park uses sectional perspectives of 22 houses by the Swiss icon to convey the evolution of his design philosophy. The book's concept sounds simple, and indeed its black-and-white design is pleasingly streamlined. But it actually accomplishes several tasks at once. Concise descriptions of the projects help place them in the continuum of Corbu's work, and provide readers with an abbreviated but informative outline of his career. And the combination of sectional perspectives for the 22 chosen houses, along with plans, sections, and elevations for these and 4 more residences, really deepens the reader's experience. It focuses our attention on the homes' spatial complexities and their dexterous detailing." -- Residential Architectshow more
