Description - Le Corbusier by Flora Samuel
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
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undiscovered and unpublished Le Corbusier building, making this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.
