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.
