The mastermind behind what he termed beautiful and functional "machines for living" Le Corbusier has long been recognised as one of the foremost figures in the international style of architecture. Yet, beginning in the 1940s, the famed architect and urbanist increasingly took modernism in a new direction that has until now been insufficiently considered and little understood.

"The Architect on the Beach takes us on an aesthetic journey into the complex realm of the great Le Corbusier. From the curve of a shell to the roof of a chapel, from the golden mean to architecture itself, this wondrous book successfully reveals the poetry inherent in the humble and sublime."
