Le Corbusier - The Art of Architecture, Deutsch
Catalog, Hardcover, German, ISBN 978931936532
As a key figure in twentieth-century architecture, Le Corbusier had a major influence
on the cultural life of his time. The publication “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 Corbusier’s work such as the relation of sculpture and architecture, his work as an
interior designer, his fascination with new media and the technical object or his lifelong
interest in the Orient.
A richly illustrated biography is showing the huge creative output of a career of more
than 60 years. 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unpublished material, this book is a comprehensive introduction to Le Corbusier’s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”.
The publication includes texts by Stanislaus von Moos, Jean-Louis Cohen, Arthur Rüegg, Beatriz Colomina, Mateo Kries and others.
