Le Corbusier

“Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of volumes brought together in light.”
—Le Corbusier

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 was not until after World War II that his epoch-making buildings were constructed, such as the Unité d’Habitation apartment complex in Marseilles, and the chapel of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp.
  • "This book again illustrates how TASCHEN brings beautiful art - in this case architectural design as art - to the masses in an interesting and informative way."
