Written by Stanislaus von Moos and originally published in 1968, this first comprehensive and critical survey of Le Corbusier's life and work soon became a standard reference text. Now reprinted after being unavailable for the better part of two decades, the book with its straightforward prose, critical views and basic criteria by which the subject matter is organized and historicized, remains surprisingly pertinent in the context of a recent surge of interest in Le Corbusier studies. The reprint offers a substantially updated body of illustrations and chapters are supplemented by a critical survey of recent scholarship on the respective issues.

Reseña del editor:

Originally published in Germany in 1968, this first comprehensive and critical survey of Le Corbusier's life and work soon became the standard text on the architect and polymath. French, Spanish, English, Japanese and Korean editions followed, but the book has now been out of print for almost two decades. In the meantime, Le Corbusier's archives in Paris have become available for research, resulting in an avalanche of scholarship. Von Moos' critical take and the basic criteria by which the subject is organized and historicized remain surprisingly pertinent in the context of this recent jungle of Corbusier studies. This new, completely revised edition is based on the 1979 version published in English by the MIT Press but offers a substantially updated body of illustrations. Each of the seven chapters is supplemented by a critical survey of recent scholarship on the respective issues. An updated edition of this acclaimed book, an essential read for students of architecture and architectural history.

Contraportada:

Originally published in German (1968), this first comprehensive and critical survey of Le Corbusier's life and work written after his death soon became a reference text. French, Spanish, English, Japanese and Korean editions followed - but the book has now been out of print for almost two decades. In the meantime, Le Corbusier's archives in Paris have become available for research, which resulted in an avalanche of scholarship and produced a large number of detailed studies on topical aspects of the work. No less than three catalogues raisonnés of Le Corbusier's entire production as an architect and artist are now available, not to mention various often serendipitous biographical studies. Von Moos' critical take and the basic criteria by which the subject is organized and historicized remain surprisingly pertinent in the context of this recent jungle of Corbusier studies. This new, completely revised edition is based on the 1979 version published in English by The MIT Press but offers a substantially updated body of illustrations. Each of the seven chapters is supplemented by a critical survey of recent scholarship on the respective issues.

An updated edition of this acclaimed book, an essential read for students of architecture and architectural history.
