Toward an Architecture (Paperback): Le Corbusier Toward an Architecture (Paperback)
Le Corbusier
R465 Discovery Miles 4 650 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Published in 1923, Toward an Architecture had an immediate impact on architects throughout Europe and remains a foundational text for students and professionals. Le Corbusier urges readers to cease thinking of architecture as a matter of historical styles and instead open their eyes to the modern world. Simultaneously a historian, critic, and prophet, he provocatively juxtaposes views of classical Greece and Renaissance Rome with images of airplanes, cars, and ocean liners. Le Corbusier's slogans--such as "the house is a machine for living in"--and philosophy changed how his contemporaries saw the relationship between architecture, technology, and history. This edition includes a new translation of the original text, a scholarly introduction, and background notes that illuminate the text and illustrations.

In the years 1942 to 1948, Le Corbusier developed a system of measurements which became known as "Modulor." Based on the Golden Section and Fibonacci numbers and also using the physical dimensions of the average human, Modulor is a sequence of measurements which Le Corbusier used to achieve harmony in his architectural compositions. Le Modulor was published in 1950 and after meeting with success, Le Corbusier went on to publish Modulor 2 in 1955. In many of Le Corbusier's most notable buildings, including the Chapel at Ronchamp and the Unite d'habitation, evidence of his Modulor system can be seen. These two volumes form an important and integral part of Le Corbusier's theoretical writings.

Available again after many years, the legendary travel diary kept by the young Le Corbusier on his journey through the Balkans in 1911. This is the legendary travel diary that the twenty-four-year-old Charles-Edouard Jeanneret (Le Corbusier) kept during his formative journey through Southern, Central, and Eastern Europe in 1911. In a flood of highly personal impressions and visual notations, it records his first contact with the vernacular architecture that would preoccupy him for the rest of his life and his first sight of the monuments he most admired: the mosque complexes, the Acropolis, and the Parthenon. Le Corbusier himself suppressed publication of this book during his lifetime; after his death, the text was released as "an unprefaced last confession." Journey to the East can be read as a bildungsroman by a young author who would go on to become one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century. It is very much a story of awakening and a voyage of discoveries, recording a seven-month journey that took Le Corbusier from Berlin through Vienna, Budapest, Bucharest, Istanbul, Athos, Athens, Naples, and Rome, among other places. Le Corbusier considered this journey the most significant of his life; the compulsion he felt to record images and impressions established a practice he would continue for the rest of his career. For the next five decades, he would fill notebooks with ideas and sketches; he never stopped deriving inspiration from the memories of his first contact with the East, making this volume as much a historical document as a personal confession and diary. Ivan Zaknic's highly regarded translation was first published by The MIT Press in 1987 but has been unavailable for many years.

Jacob Brillhart; Illustrated by Le Corbusier; Foreword by Jean-Louis Cohen
R548 R520 Discovery Miles 5 200 Save R28 (5%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Here, Jacob Brillhart excavates the "visual thinking" of the twentieth century's pioneer architect, reproducing a selection of 175 drawings from the early sketchbooks of Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, whom we now know as Le Corbusier. Between 1907 and 1911, Jeanneret studied in Switzerland and travelled through Europe and the East, filling sketchbooks with exquisitely detailed drawings. Brillhart provides a physical and intellectual map for students, travellers and lovers of art and architecture. The first book to provide a succinct collection of Jeanneret's drawings, some of which are previously unpublished, Voyage Le Corbusier encourages a new generation to learn to see.

Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of his death (August 27, 2015), one of Le Corbusier's most significant books becomes available again in English. The "Precisions", as the book is commonly known, emerged from a spontaneous and exuberant series of 10 lectures Le Corbusier gave in Buenos Aires in 1929, reflecting a new maturity in his thinking. They contain some of his most compelling aphorisms, covering technique as the basis of architecture, the human scale in design, furniture, the private house, apartments and office buildings, the city, the League of Nations competition, teaching architecture. As he spoke, Le Corbusier improvised colour drawings on large sheets of paper. The drawings and lectures are unique in their eloquent and concise summary of his philosophy of architecture and urban design, stating the principles that informed his work from the 1920s on. This new edition for the first time features all of Le Corbusier's drawings in colour. A new essay by British scholar Tim Benton, written for this new edition, contextualizes the "Precisions" within Le Corbusier's oeuvre and comments on their lasting significance.

We picture the buildings of the high priest of modern architecture, Le Corbusier, as exemplars of crisp geometric forms and industrial, machined-age details, but we often forget that he integrated nature and the human element into his compositions. Nowhere is this more evident than the Modulor, Corb's own measuring system based on the proportions of the body and intended to replace the sterile metric system with a "more harmonious set of measurements." Never achieving the universal acceptance he envisioned, the Modulor is a fascinating look at Corb's efforts to reconcile human stature (in this case, his signature man-with-arm-upraised) and mathematics. This facsimile edition of the tape measure Corb made and carried in his pocket in a metal film canister features the red-and-blue Modulor system on one side of a flexible tape, and imperial and metric markings on the other. This handsome object has a fascinating history and is the perfect gift for the desk of any architect, designer, modernism fan, mathematician, woodworker, seamstress, or anyone interested in measuring.

2014 Reprint of 1927 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. This classic work is a collection of essays written by Le Corbusier advocating for and exploring the concept of modern architecture. The book has had a lasting effect on the architectural profession, serving as the manifesto for a generation of architects, a subject of hatred for others, and unquestionably a critical piece of architectural theory. The architectural historian Reyner Banham once claimed that its influence was unquestionably "beyond that of any other architectural work published in this 20th] century to date." That unparalleled influence has continued, unabated, into the 21st century. The polemical book contains seven essays. Each essay dismisses the contemporary trends of eclecticism and art deco, replacing them with architecture that was meant to be more than a stylistic experiment; rather, an architecture that would fundamentally change how humans interacted with buildings. This new mode of living derived from a new spirit defining the industrial age, demanding a rebirth of architecture based on function and a new aesthetic based on pure form.

In June 2013, The Museum of Modern Art presents the largest exhibition ever produced on Le Corbusier's prolific oeuvre, encompassing his work as architect, interior designer, artist, city planner, writer and photographer. Over a six-decade career, this towering figure of modern culture constantly observed and imagined landscapes using all the artistic techniques at his command, including watercolors, sketches, paintings, photographs and models. This accompanying publication, appearing 25 years after the Centre Pompidou released the seminal catalogue "Le Corbusier, une encyclopedie," aspires to become a new sourcebook, giving an account of research developed worldwide in recent decades. Reflecting the geographic extension of his designs and built works as well as his indefatigable wanderlust, the book is structured as an atlas, with topographical entries allowing for the discovery of the major sites and cities where Le Corbusier worked. Featuring essays by an international range of curators, scholars and critics, and a trove of archival images and materials from the Fondation Le Corbusier in Paris, this lavishly illustrated volume presents a wholly unique way to explore the life and work of one of the most important visionaries of our time.
