Towards a new architecture by Le Corbusier( Book )
345 editions published between 1923 and 2013 in 19 languages and held by 3,776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Few books of the twentieth century draw as much attention as Le Corbusier's Vers Une Architecture (1923), published in English as Towards a New Architecture (1927). Its slogans and juxtapositions of temples with machines inspired architects to design housing that met the demands of modern life. This new translation preserves the design and voice of the original. A revealing introduction - including discoveries regarding Le Corbusier's manipulation of images - explains how the renowned architect assembled his essay and illuminates the reception of his impassioned views."--BOOK JACKET

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

A study of the work of the architect, not a biography
Le Corbusier homme de lettres by M. Christine Boyer( )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 459 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."--P. 4 of cover
