Precisions on the present state of architecture and city planning : with an American prologue, a Brazilian corollary followed by the temperature of Paris and the atmosphere of Moscow by Le Corbusier( Book )

53 editions published between 1930 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Precisions on the Present State of Architecture and City Planning, or 'Precisions', as the book is commonly known, originated from a series of ten lectures presented by Le Corbusier in Buenos Aires in 1929. Concise summations of the Swiss-born French architect's pioneering philosophy, the lectures contain some of Le Corbusier's most compelling aphorisms and cover topics ranging from technique, design and human scale, and the 1927 League of Nations competition to the teaching of architecture and an analysis of the transformation of his own work over time. This new edition presents the 'Precisions' lectures to a new audience. During the lectures, Le Corbusier punctuated his points with a series of improvised crayon-on-paper drawings. This is the first edition to reproduce all forty drawings in color. The book also includes Le Corbusier's introduction, appended in the 1960s, which describes the tremendous impact the city of Buenos Aires had on the architect - its beauty and vast potential, as well as the considerable challenges presented by this city 'trembling on the verge of great works'. A new additional essay by Tim Benton places the lectures in context with the larger body of Le Corbusier's work. Finally, an appendix has been added with brief descriptions of key figures and events discussed

Le Corbusier, the noble savage : toward an archaeology of modernism by Adolf Max Vogt( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and French and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vogt's investigation of LC's early life and education not only reveals important, previously unacknowledged influences on specific projects such as the League of Nations headquarters and the Villa Savoye, but also suggests why LC throughout his career preferred to lift buildings above the ground, to give them the appearance of "floating." This tendency had decisive consequences for buildings associated with the modern movement and continues to influence architecture today

Le Corbusier : homme de lettres by M. Christine Boyer( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On his French identity card, legendary architect Le Corbusier listed his profession as "homme de lettres" (man of Letters). Celebrated for his architecture, Le Corbusier also wrote more than fifty books, hundreds of articles, and thousands of letters. Le Corbusier, Homme de Lettres is the first in-depth study of Le Corbusier as a writer as well as an architect. Featuring more than two hundred archival images of his writings, paintings, and photographs, this groundbreaking book examines Le Corbusier's many writing projects from 1907 to 1947, as well as his letters written to two mentors: Charles L'Eplattenier and William Ritter. Author M. Christine Boyer focuses on the development of his writing style as it morphed from romantic prose to aphorisms and telegraphic bulletins. For each of his books, Le Corbusier was meticulous about the design of the page layout, the form of the type, the impact of the ideas, and even the promotional material. As a man of letters, Le Corbusier expected to contribute to the cultural atmosphere of the twentieth century. Le Corbusier, Homme de Lettres shows for the first time how his voluminous output--books, diaries, letters, sketchbooks, travel notebooks, lecture transcriptions, exposition catalogs, journal articles--reflects not just a compulsion to write, but a passion for advancing his ideas about the relationship between architecture, urbanism, and society in a new machine age."--Page 4 of cover
