Le Corbusier Le Grand


The latest AbeBooks video offering is a review and peek inside of the book Le Corbusier Le Grand, a stunning visual biography of the work and life of Swiss-French architect Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, more commonly known as Le Corbusier (an altered version of his maternal grandfather’s name).  Le Corbusier specialized in building solutions for exploding populations in urban areas. His influence on architecture and space management can be seen in the style of city centers all over Europe and the world to this day.

Put out by publishers of famously gorgeous books Phaidon Press, the book itself is an object of beauty and substance, weighing 20 lbs and measuring nearly a foot and a half tall. It includes 2000 images, both photographs and illustrations, and is dazzling to peruse. Enjoy this look inside.
