About this Item

127 p. First edition thus. This is an interesting and provocative look at architecture, city planning, public spaces, etc., from one of the world's most prominent architects. The translator says that "Le Corbusier is not a man, but an ideal. These two distinctions, upon which Le Corbusier himself insists, are essential to an understanding of his plasticd and literary work and aims." The book is richly illustrated with black-and-write drawings by the architect. Octavo (3 1/2" x 6"), flax-colored cloth hard cover, very good; dust jacket somewhat worn, chipped, with one-inch closed tear (protected in acid-free mylar jacket); gift inscription on front free endpaper.
