Title: Maison Blanche - Charles-Edouard Jeanneret,
Le Corbusier - Histoire et restauration de la villa Jeanneret-Perret
Authors: Edited by Klaus Spechtenhauser and Arthur Rüeg
The villa known as Maison Blanche is one of Le Corbusier's early
masterworks. He created this complete work of architecture, landscape
architecture, and interior design art for his parents.
After standing empty for years, the building was purchased by a
specially formed association, which established an interdisciplinary
commission to oversee its restoration by the architect Pierre Minder.
As the house was freed from later changes and additions and the garden
returned to its original condition, the young Le Corbusier's
intellectual workshop gradually came into view. The practicability of
these measures was carefully determined with a feasibility study
conducted on the basis of reports and archival studies.
Together with the discoveries made during construction, new color
photographs, and the precise reconstruction plans, this material now
serves as the basis for this magnificent monograph.
