Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, otherwise known as the Swiss architect Le Corbusier, is famous for proclaiming ''the house is a machine for living in''. This neat comparison of 106 of his designs for houses edited by Tadao Ando Laboratory (with model, as well as plan and side views), each house to one spread, sets Le Corbusier's experiments in perspective.
Two essays discuss the theory behind his designs and what they reveal about the man himself. A thick paper dust jacket is included.
