9780470847473: Le Corbusier: Architect and Feminist

This is a revealing book which, for the first time, investigates the central influence of feminism in the work of Le Corbusier; one of the most important and revered architects of all time.

The text covers Le Corbusier’s upbringing and training and sets this in the context of the cultural atmosphere of his time, covering issues of gender and religion. It reveals aspects of his private life such as personal relationships, which have barely been explored before as no biography currently exists. Furthermore, the author reveals, for the first time in print, a previously undiscovered and unpublished Le Corbusier building, making this book an incredibly significant addition to existing literature on the great man.

In short, the new evidence and theories contained in this volume amount to major revelations about this hugely revered and central architectural figure of the 20th Century.

From the Back Cover:

Frequently reviled by feminists of our generation, Le Corbusier was in fact one of the few Modernist architects to give serious consideration to the role of women in contemporary society, believing them to be instigators of change and an important force in the advancement of society.

Ranging in scope from Le Corbusier’s interest in fashion, housework and sex to a close analysis of the philosophies underlying his architecture, his fascination with Orphism, his artwork and his buildings, this book examines the ramifications of his interest in feminism in all aspects of his life. A disparity between his idealised view of womanhood and the reality of the women he knew and loved is revealed.

The book is essential reading for anybody who is interested in the way the relationship between the sexes impacts on architecture, and in the personal and professional life of Le Corbusier. Encompassing much new material – including the Provisional Theatre at La Sainte Baume, designed by Le Corbusier but never before published – it provides a valuable resource for those who remain unconvinced by standard histories of this enigmatic and complex figure.

About the Author:

FLORA SAMUEL is an architect and a lecturer at the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff, where she teaches design and history. She has written widely on the subject of Le Corbusier and is interested in unearthing aspects of his work that other researchers have ignored or discounted. Previous publications include Nature and Space: Aalto and Le Corbusier, written with Sarah Menin.
