Le Corbusier L'Unite D'Habitation De Marseille / The Unite D'Habitation in Marseilles

Synopsis : "Whilst focused primarily on the Unite d'Habitation in Marseilles, built between 1945 and 1952, this guide also encompasses an overview of the four other unite blocks built by Le Corbusier in France and abroad. In many ways, it represents the culmination of Le Corbusier's research into housing - a period of studies and writings that lasted almost half a century. Over the fifty years of its existence, the Marseilles Unite has continually kindled intense debate and interest. It is now ranked among the world's greatest architectural works, proving - should proof still be required - Le Corbusier's belief that housing is an essential ingredient of architecture and vice versa. [-Jacques Sbriglio-] ..."

Le Corbusier Le Couvent Sainte Marie de La Tourette

Synopsis : "In 1952 Le Corbusier was commissioned "to dwell in the silence of men of prayer and study and to construct a church for them". The result was his impressive Convent of La Tourette, marking a significant step in modern religious architecture. Beginning with the rectangular form common to the Cirstercian monastic tradition, he created a building whose stark form contrasts beautifully with the organic elements of the interior court and the grasslands surrounding it. The church itself is a model of simplicity, the cement has been left rough and the well located sources of light evoke a feeling of silence and reflection. The order's precept of prayer, study and reflection is aptly mirrored in the architecture. Like the other Le Corbusier Guides published by Birkhäuser, this volume provides a wealth of plans, details, photographs and information on this building which today is also a conference centre.

Le Corbusier The City of Refuge, Paris 1929/33

Synopsis : "The City of Refuge complex—commissioned by the Salvation Army as part of its program to transform social outcasts into spiritually renewed workers—represents a significant confluence of design principles, technological experiments, and attitudes on reform. It also provides rare insights into the work of one of the twentieth century's greatest architects, Le Corbusier. Brian Brace Taylor draws on extensive archival research to reconstruct each step of the architect's attraction to the commission, his design process and technological innovations, the social and philosophical compatibility of the Salvation Army with Le Corbusier's own ideas for urban planning, and finally, the many modifications required, first to eliminate defects and later to accommodate changes in the services the building provided. Throughout, Taylor focuses on Le Corbusier's environmental, technological, and social intentions as opposed to his strictly formal intentions. He shows that the City of Refuge became primarily a laboratory for the architect's own research and not simply a conventional solution to residents' requirements or the Salvation Army's program.

Le Corbusier, 1887-1965 The Lyricism of Architecture in the Machine Age

Synopsis : "Architectural poetry in the machine age Born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, Le Corbusier (1887-1965) adopted his famous pseudonym after publishing his ideas in the review L'Esprit Nouveau in 1920. The few buildings he was able to design during the 1920s, when he also spent much of his time painting and writing, brought him to the forefront of modern architecture, though it wasn't until after World War II that his epoch-making buildings were constructed, such as the Uniti d'Habitation in Marseilles and the Church of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp. Basic Architecture features: Each title contains approximately 120 images, including photographs, sketches, drawings, and floor plans Introductory essays explore the architect's life and work, touching on family and background as well as collaborations with other architects The body presents the most important works in chronological order, with descriptions of client and/or architect wishes, construction problems, and resolutions.

Immeuble 24 N.C. et Appartement Le Corbusier. Apartment Block 24 N.C. and Le Corbusier's Home

Synopsis : "the construction of the apartment block at number 24, rue Nungesser et Coli in Paris, between 1931 and 1934, was an important milestone for Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret. It was the first opportunity offered to them in France to put to the test theories on urbanism and architecture, which they had been working on since the 1920s ("cinq points de l architecture moderne"), and marks an important stage on the path to Brutalism. And it is of all the more interest because of the apartment and art studio Le Corbusier designed for the top two floors of the building and in which he lived from 1934 until his death in 1965. Historical documents and drawings make this handy-sized volume an invaluable guide for visitors and a practical introduction for all architectural enthusiasts. [-Jacques Sbriglio-] ..."
