Le Corbusier: The Measures of Man
- Few figures tower over modern architecture and city life like Le Corbusier, and this book offers the most up-to-date picture of his achievements.
- His dramatic rethinking of the principles and aims of architectural design made a profound impression on the spaces of twentieth-century cities and the ways that people lived in them.
- A new generation of researchers and curators looks in particular at his life-long study of the human proportion and how the human body should be housed.
- Created to accompany a breathtakingly ambitious retrospective at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the book traces Le Corbusiers life and work from his earliest days through his greatest successes and lasting influences.
