Curtis is Historian and critic who has taught at numerous universities around the world and who has contributed to many international journals. In 1999 he received a National Honor Society Gold Medal for Architecture and Allied Arts in the USA.Review:
"William J. R. Curtis is the best architectural historian writing in the English language, and that alone makes this book something of an event."-Chicago Tribune "This is not only the best single work on Le Corbusier - a model of scholarship, erudite yet eminently readable - it is also an invaluable analysis of the creative architectural process. It should be read and re-read by every student of architecture."-Building Design "It is as incisive narrative, informed by biography and illuminated by penetrating critical commentary, that this book excels."-Times Literary Supplement "An admirable introduction to Le Corbusier's life and work. It is also a record of personal observation and synthesis by an informed and shrewdly sensitive author which will remain valid and fresh long term"-Architectural Review "The most lucid and complete chronicle yet available of Le Corbusier's achievement. This book excels."-AIA Journal "A fantastic new edition from Phaidon."-The Daily Beast "An exceptional history and a spectacular collection of images."-Metropolis Magazine "Impressive... Any committed bibliophile should splash out on this new, seductively hefty tome... A succinct over-view of one man's determination to change the world... We are fortunate to have Curtis'; considered critique to vouchsafe Corb's rightful place in the architectural pantheon."-RIAS Quarterly
