Le Corbusier Redrawn: the Houses
Ce livre présente les plans, sections et élévations d'une vingtaine de maisons du Corbusier. Chacune est accompagnée d'un petit texte qui rappelle le contexte et les grandes lignes du projet.
Le Corbusier (1887-1965) was the most significant architect of the twentieth century. Every architecture student examines the Swiss master's work. Yet, all too frequently, they rely on reproductions of faded drawings of uneven size and quality.
Le Corbusier Redrawn presents the only collection of consistently rendered original drawings (at 1:200 scale) of all twenty-six of Le Corbusier's residential works. Using the original drawings from the Le Corbusier Foundation's digital archives, architect Steven Park has beautifully redrawn 130 perspectival sections, as well as plans, sections, and elevations of exterior forms and interior spaces.
These remarkable new drawings -which combine the conceptual clarity of the section with the spatial qualities of the perspective- not only provide information about the buildings, they also help students experience specific works spatially as they learn to critically examine Le Corbusier's works.
