Le Corbusier Redrawn: The Houses presents 25 of Le Corbusier s small residential work (self-sufficient and detached singleand double-family houses) through sectional projections (perspectival sections) as well as plans, sections, and elevations. Sectional projections, compared to other types of representation, capture most clearly the relational dynamic among different building elements and therefore express most effectively the architect s design intentions. The book is the only collection of consistently rendered original original drawings (at 1:200 scale) of Le Corbusier s architecture. Included works are as follows: 1. Maison-atelier du peintre Amedee Ozenfant, Paris, France, 1922; 2. Villa Besnus, "Ker-Ka-Re", Vaucresson, France, 1922*; 3. Villa Le Lac, Corseaux, Switzerland,1923; 4.

MEDIA REVIEWS
" Steven Park absolutely nails a graphic language of simple, elegant architectural rendering. The book is filled with page after page of three-dimensional digital renderings that actually speak to a timeless craft of draftsmanship. Subtle coloring at glazing and shadow lines at relief allow the drawing to pop off the page. The text establishes a graphic language that is everything it needs to be and nothing more. This is our new favorite book and we highly recommend picking up a copy." -- Build blog
"Park's book is extremely valuable for collecting 26 of the architect's houses in one place, with orthographic drawings all to the same scale. The sectional perspectives are extremely well done, but they would be incomplete without these 2-D drawings, especially the floor plans. Of course, as Park points out in his preface, the drawings cannot be a substitute for "walking through a building, measuring its dimensions with hands and arms ... [grasping] the relationship between the representation and reality." Yes, such is the case with all architecture, but even for moments after one has been able to visit one of Corbusier's houses, this book is a great collection of his great houses." -- Archidose.org
"Park uses sectional perspectives of 22 houses by the Swiss icon to convey the evolution of his design philosophy. The book's concept sounds simple, and indeed its black-and-white design is pleasingly streamlined. But it actually accomplishes several tasks at once. Concise descriptions of the projects help place them in the continuum of Corbu's work, and provide readers with an abbreviated but informative outline of his career. And the combination of sectional perspectives for the 22 chosen houses, along with plans, sections, and elevations for these and 4 more residences, really deepens the reader's experience. It focuses our attention on the homes' spatial complexities and their dexterous detailing." -- Residential Architect
