Le Corbusier: Ideas and Forms


This probing study of Le Corbusier’s work explores the interactions of ideas and forms in his individual buildings and in his oeuvre as a whole. By penetrating the design processes of his major buildings, it reveals the architect’s struggle to reconcile the ideal and the practical and to give clients’ aspirations and society’s institutions a suitable symbolic form. It analyses Le Corbusier’s phenomenal powers of imaginative synthesis, the recurrent elements of his architectural language and the multiple levels of meaning in his projects. In turn, it shows how this most ‘modern’ of architects drew inspiration from both nature and the past.
