A picture may be worth a thousand words, but there's no real substitute for personal experience. Anyone who's visited the architecture of Le Corbusier knows just how true this is. The physicality of his work, its tactility...you just have to feel it. Our indispensable "The Le Corbusier Guide", first published in 1987 and now in its third edition, will help you do just that. This architectural handbook tells you everything you need to know to get to Le Corbusier's extant buildings in Europe, Japan, Russia, Africa, India, and North and South America, and includes updated maps, directions, and visitor information. An essay by historian Alan Plattus introduces the reader to the life and ideas of the great architect. Photographs, plans, and precise descriptions then review each of the projects, addressing their history and ideas. A complete alphabetical index, glossary of terms, and biographical introduction make the perfect reference for the scholar, student, and tourist. Also included is a new preface by the author.
