Walking Through Le Corbusier: A Tour of His Masterworks (Hardcover)

Walking Through Le Corbusier: A Tour of His Masterworks By Jose Baltanas Cover Image


This book features some of Le Corbusier's most important European buildings, complemented by others that, while interesting, are less well-known. Its photographs, specially taken by the author, provide a narrative description of each building and are supported by literary and graphic data that provide a single conceptual and visual argument. Each 'walk through' is accompanied by an introduction that brings together the architect's main ideas about the building; at least one floor plan, on which the position the photograph has been taken is indicated by an arrow; phrases by Le Corbusier directly relating to what is shown in the image; drawings by the architect of certain details; and images from other Le Corbusier buildings that enlarge on the discussion or elucidate a point.
