This visual tour of every one of Le Corbusier's buildings across the world represents the most comprehensive photographic archive of the architect's work. In 2010, photographer Cemal Emden set out to document every building designed by the master architect Le Corbusier. Traveling through three continents, Emden photographed all the 52 buildings that remain standing. Each of these buildings is featured in the book and captured from multiple angles, with images revealing their exterior and interior details. Interspersed throughout the book are texts by leading architects and scholars, whose commentaries are as fascinating and varied as the buildings themselves. The book closes with an illustrated, annotated index. From the early Villa Vallet, built in Switzerland in 1905, to his groundbreaking Unit� d'Habitation in Marseille, completed in 1947, this ambitious project presents the entirety and diversity of Le Corbusier's architectural output. Visually arresting and endlessly engaging, it will appeal to the architect's many fans, as well as anyone interested in the foundation of modern architecture.

This is the first book to give such close attention to Le Corbusier's approach to the making of buildings. It illustrates the ways in which Le Corbusier's details were expressive of his overall philosophical intentions. It is not a construction book in the usual sense- rather it focusses on the meaning of detail, on the ways in which detail informs the overall architectural narrative of a building. Well illustrated and containing several specially prepared scaled drawings it acts as timely reminder to both students and architects of the possibilities inherent in the most small scale tectonic gestures.

The Le Corbusier Guide presents the architecture of Le Corbusier. The focus is on Paris given that it is his adopted city and the place where he came of age. Within its environs is a representative sample of his built work. It contains most of his purist houses, and an early foray away from the crisp surfaces of Purism. This itinerary follows the outlines of Le Corbusier's life's work. Beginning at his birthplace in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, the route continues to Paris, to the perimeter of France, and finally to the international scene architects, architecture, Paris. Also presented are Le Corbusier's work in Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, Italy, United States, Argentina, Brazil, Tunisia, Iraq, Japan, USSR, and India. The itinerary includes not only the buildings but also the process of getting from one to the next. On the ""open road"" it is a pleasure to remember Le Corbusier's own joy of self-propulsion in the automobile, efficiency, and speed in the train; and the thrill of flight as he experienced it with the poet of flight, Antoine de Saint Exupery. All these mimetic pleasures are ancillary to the experience of the buildings in situ in their complex relationship to local landscape, national spirit, and international vision.

This volume explores an unbuilt yet iconic project by Le Corbusier and its visual representation. The Venice Hospital is the uncontested epitome of the 'mat', or carpet, building type - a low sprawling structure developed in the late fifties and sixties that is making a strong comeback in contemporary architecture. Planned in 1965 for the arsenal area at the edge of the city, the hospital was designed to extend the city's roads and canal networks, while simultanously turning in on itself to create flexible, quasi- urban interior environments in the form of endlessly repeating courtyards. Upon Le Corbusier's death in 1965, Guillermo Jullian de la Fuente was commissioned to complete the building. However, due to changes in city government, the project was eventually abandoned. This book reinvestigates this canonic example of Le Corbusier's late work and includes an account of de la Fuente's involvement in the project, previously unpublished drawings from his archive, and a reprint of Alison Smithson's seminal essay on 'mat' buildings.

No other architect since Palladio has exercised such an immense influence as Le Corbusier. As with Einstein and Picasso, Le Corbusier made an impact that was felt within but also outside his special discipline. Through numerous buildings, urban projects, paintings, sculptures, drawings, and publications, he succeeded to develop a unique poetics of machine and metaphor, revolutionizing the way people see, use, and make architecture. More than a modern architect, Le Corbusier was the architect of modern life. The present monograph discusses Le Corbusier's oeuvre in a concise global manner in relation to the revolutionary developments of the century in which it was born. It shows how Le Corbusier worked within the context of new philosophical ideas; the avant-garde culture; the social, economic, and political movements; and new technology, achieving more than a delicate balance-- a synthesis. But it demonstrates also that Le Corbusier was a creator who conceived, enticed, and shaped many of these developments. As well as being the architect of the twentieth century, Le Corbusier is a prototype of human creativity.
