The largest exhibition ever produced on Le Corbusier’s prolific oeuvre, encompassing his work as architect, interior designer, artist, city planner, writer and photographer. Including his watercolors, sketches, paintings, photographs and models. 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. 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.
