In this classic, the authors present Le Corbusier’s most important buildings, projects, and urban planning designs. The spectrum ranges from the early house studies and buildings, such as the «Citrohan» houses, the Weissenhof houses, the housing estate in Pessac to large residential and commercial buildings such as the various Unités d’Habitation and the house of the Centrosoyus in Moscow, from theoretical works such as the development of the «Modulor», to the urban plans presented in detail, for example: for Algiers, Rio de Janiero, Berlin or Chandigarh. Each project is presented through photographs, plan material, documents, and sketches by Le Corbusier.

The volume also includes a selection of his paintings.

A biography and a complete list of works (buildings and projects) add to the content to create a concise overview of Le Corbusier’s vast oeuvre.
