Of contemporary importance in modern art and architecture, city planning, this biographical-credo of Le Corbusier gives the history of his career, the story of his work. The illustrations of his paintings, buildings, plans (over 100 of them) enliven the text, make visual his theories and the practice of them, explain his definition of himself as a ""rebel"". A vanguard personality, LeCorbusier in his work offers an expression of his times and modern ideas. A book specifically for the art departments, and for students of current trends in art. Newsworthy in those circles. Beautiful format.
