|Newly reprinted to coincide with the major exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery, this exhibition catalogue and book offers an overview of Le Corbusier's work as an architect and a designer of comprehensive ideas. It provides insights into his furniture, interior design and art as a catalyst for the creative developments of his time.|
As a key figure in 20th century architecture, Le Corbusier had a major influence on the cultural life of his time. Le Corbusier: The Art of Architecture presents an overview of his work, which included not only architectural projects, interior design and furniture but also paintings, textiles, sculptures, drawings and books. Essays of well-known Le Corbusier experts examine outstanding aspects in Le Corbusiers work such as the relation of sculpture and architecture, his work as an interior designer, his fascination with new media and the technical object and his life-long interest in the Orient.
Based on the latest research results and on a rich choice of previously unpublished material, this book is a comprehensive introduction to Le Corbusier's work and influences, but also offers new discoveries for the many people already familiar with the work of the Architect of the Century.
This book includes texts by Stanislaus von Moos, Jean-Louis Cohen, Arthur Ruegg, Beatriz Colomina, Mateo Kries and Charles Knevitt.
