Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A huge influence on big Hamptons builder Charles Gwathmey, not to mention on many others, was Swiss genius Charles douard Jeanneret-Gris, better known as Le Corbusier (1887-1965). Columbia University architectural historian Kenneth Frampton, author of the standard textbook Modern Architecture, here offers his entry in the T&H World of Art series. The book covers Le Corbusier's life and projects, from blocks of the 1920s Ville Contemporaine to Ronchamp Cathedral in Notre Dame-du-Haut to work in India and for Harvard. As a short introduction, it complements Charles Jenck's massive, opinionated Le Corbusier and the Continual Revolution in Architecture from Marsilio last year.

Format: Hardcover
ISBN: 0671206923 and ISBN: 0500580049 ONLY! This hardcover 10.25" x 8" (26 cm x 20 cm) survey of 16 major works from 1929 to 1964 on only 136 pages is mostly in black & white, is comprised almost exclusively of 98 illustrations, and was published in English in 1970 by Simon & Schuster in US (Thames & Huston, London in Masters of Modern Architecture series) following the first edition in Japan in 1967 by Bijutsu Shuppan-sha, Tokyo. The introductory part on 12 pages by Martin Pawley is followed by 98 pages of illustrations - mainly photos, as well as hard line plans and sections in B&W. Several pages at the end of book contain a list of works, biographical notes, and a bibliography. Of 98 illustrations, 75 are photos (64 in B&W and 11 in color) by Yukio Futagawa of excellent quality, well balanced, crisp, and legible. Like all from the Library of Contemporary Architects/Masters of MODERN Architecture series, it is very good among architectural monographs, and superior to the Masters of WORLD Architecture/Makers of Contemporary Architecture series (ISBN: 08076*), or Studio Paperback series published by Birkhauser Verlag under ISBN: 37643* (Basel)/08176* (Boston) or Artemis Verlag under ISBN: 37608* (Zurich)/18740* (London).
