About this title


A huge influence on big Hamptons builder Charles Gwathmey, not to mention on many others, was Swiss genius Charles douard Jeanneret-Gris, better known as Le Corbusier (1887-1965). Columbia University architectural historian Kenneth Frampton, author of the standard textbook Modern Architecture, here offers his entry in the T&H World of Art series. The book covers Le Corbusier's life and projects, from blocks of the 1920s Ville Contemporaine to Ronchamp Cathedral in Notre Dame-du-Haut to work in India and for Harvard. As a short introduction, it complements Charles Jenck's massive, opinionated Le Corbusier and the Continual Revolution in Architecture from Marsilio last year.

About the Author:

Kenneth Frampton is an outstanding critic and historian of modern architecture. He is Ware Professor of Architecture at Columbia University, New York. His many publications include Modern Architecture: A Critical History, now in its third revised edition in the World of Art and published in foreign editions worldwide.
