Riguardo questo articolo

132pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. "This volume explores an unbuilt yet iconic project by Le Corbusier and its visual representation. The Venice Hospital is the uncontested epitome of the "mat", or carpet, building type - a low sprawling structure developed in the late 1950s and 1960s that is making a strong comeback in contemporary architecture. Planned in 1965 for the arsenal area at the edge of the city, the hospital was designed to extend the city's roads and canal networks, while simultaneously turning in on itself to create flexible, quasi-urban environments in the form of endlessly repeating courtyards. Upon Le Corbusier's death in 1965, Guillermo Jullian de la Fuente was commissioned to complete the building. However, due to changes in city government, the project was eventually abandoned. This study investigates this canonic example of Le Corbusier's late work and includes an account of de la Fuente's involvement in the project, previously unpublished drawings from his archive, and a reprint of Alison Smithson's seminal essay on "mat" buildings". A brand new, most handsome example of this uncommon item. Codice inventario libreria 024642

Riassunto:

This volume explores an unbuilt yet iconic project by Le Corbusier and its visual representation. The Venice Hospital is the uncontested epitome of the "mat", or carpet, building type - a low sprawling structure developed in the late 1950s and 1960s that is making a strong comeback in contemporary architecture. Planned in 1965 for the arsenal area at the edge of the city, the hospital was designed to extend the city's roads and canal networks, while simultaneously turning in on itself to create flexible, quasi-urban environments in the form of endlessly repeating courtyards. Upon Le Corbusier's death in 1965, Guillermo Jullian de la Fuente was commissioned to complete the building. However, due to changes in city government, the project was eventually abandoned. This study investigates this canonic example of Le Corbusier's late work and includes an account of de la Fuente's involvement in the project, previously unpublished drawings from his archive, and a reprint of Alison Smithson's seminal essay on "mat" buildings.

From the Publisher:

Planned in 1965 for the arsenal area at the edge of the city, the hospital was designed to extend the city ’s roads and canal networks, while simultaneously turning in on itself to create flexible, quasi- urban interior environments in the form of endlessly repeating courtyards. Upon Le Corbusier ’s death in 1965, Guillermo Jullian de la Fuente was commissioned to complete the building. However, due to changes in city government, the project was eventually abandoned. This book reinvestigates this canonic example of Le Corbusier ’s late work and includes an account of de la Fuente ’s involvement in the project, previously unpublished drawings from his archive, and a reprint of Alison Smithson' s seminal essay on “mat ”buildings.
