9780500203415: Le Corbusier (World of Art)

Le Corbusier is probably the most famous architect of the 20th century. The richness and variety of his work and his passionately expressed philosopy of architecture have had a gigantic impact on the urban fabric and the way we live. Weaving through his long and prolific life are certain recurrent themes -- his perennial drive towards new types of dwelling, from the early white villas to the UnitE d'Habitation at Marseilles; his evolving concepts of urban form, including Plan Voisin of 1925 with its cruciform towers imposed on the city of Paris, and his work at Chandigarh in India; and his belief in a new technocratic order. The distinguished critic and historian Kenneth Frampton re-examines all these facets of his artistic and philosophical world-view in light of recent thinking, and presents us with a Le Corbusier for the 21st century.

Book Description:

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.

About the Author:

Kenneth Frampton is an outstanding critic and historian of modern architecture. He is Ware Professor of Architecture at Columbia University, New York. His many publications include Modern Architecture: A Critical History, now in its third revised edition in the World of Art and published in foreign editions worldwide.

Descrizione libro Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Le Corbusier s ideas and works constitute the greatest single influence in the development of architecture in the 20th century. His passionately expressed philosophy has had an enormous effect on the urban fabric and the way we live. Weaving through his long and prolific life are certain recurrent themes - his perennial drive towards new types of dwelling, from the early white villas to the Unite d Habitation at Marseilles; his evolving concepts of urban form, including the Plan Voisin of 1925; and his belief in a new technocratic order. Frampton draws on the latest research to set Le Corbusier s work against the background of his complex personality. The treatment is largely chronological, revealing the architect s development and his world-wide legacy. It discusses the full range of his achievement, from realized buildings and the new Indian city of Chandigarh, to the messianic modernist publications in which he espoused his fervent belief in architecture as an agent of progress.
