Title: Le Corbusier - The Measures of Man
Authors: Edited by Frédéric Migayrou and Olivier Cinqualbre
Publisher: Scheidegger & Spiess
Le Corbusier - The Measures of Man offers the most
we have of Le Corbusier’s achievement. A new generation of researchers
and curators looks in particular at his lifelong study of human
proportion and how the human body should be housed.
accompany a breathtakingly ambitious retrospective at the Pompidou
Centre in Paris, the book traces Le Corbusier’s life and work from
his earliest days through his greatest successes and lasting
influences. It covers not only his iconic building designs and bold
plans for city centers, but also presents a substantial exploration of
his achievements as a painter and sculptor.
Lavishly illustrated with nearly five hundred images - three quarters
them in full color, it is an
incredible celebration of the master architect’s achievement.
Le Corbusier: The Measures of Man is also available
in French and German.
