The book starts with Le Corbusier's formative years in La Chaux-de-Fonds, and considers his oeuvre in four stages, analysing key buildings from each phase. The analytical method reveals subtle nuanses of technique in Le Corbusier's design methodology and demonstrates those principles on which his work was based."  Read more...
