Overview

This book is a unique analysis and explanation of Le Corbusier's early education, his travels in Europe and the East, his buildings and his Purist paintings.
As one of the key architects of the twentieth century, Le Corbusier continues to excite and intrigue architects, artists and students. He acquired his skills as a designer by a meticulous study of historical examples of art and architecture and although he wrote and published widely throughout his life, his early notebooks, diaries and sketches have never before been properly analysed and discussed. In bringing together the very best of his early sketches, Professor Baker explains how they relate to his first buildings. He also provides extensive evidence of the way John Ruskin influenced the young Charles-Edouard Jeanneret.
The book is illustrated by over 300 of Le Corbusier's sketches and designs and is an important contribution to the understanding of this great architect.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The special value of this study by Baker (architecture, Tulane) is the close attention it pays to the early architectural work of Le Corbusier, arguably the 20th century's greatest architect. Baker examines drawings, sketches, and all manner of visual evidence from Le Corbusier's early years (up to 1920) to explain in a step-by-step fashion his creative search for modern architecturethat is, a fully industrialized architecture that still contains artistic importance. Baker, one of the best-known scholars of Le Corbusier, having previously published Le Corbusier: An Analysis of Form (1984), is a lucid writer and a tireless investigator. Recommended for all architecture collections.Peter S. Kaufman, Boston Architectural Ctr.
