• Bricks & Words #9: ‘Le Corbusier’

    Arguably the world’s most famous post-war architect, Chales Edouard Jeanneret-Gris adopted a persona, name - ‘Crow-like one’ - and profile that aided this tremendously, even without his genuinely iconic architecture. His ideas informed more than one generation of practitioners and continue to have relevance today.

    This compact book by legendary architect, critic and lecturer Kenneth Frampton remains one of the best short guides to this man available. It outlines the important works, his life and the impact of both and is tied together beautifully with Frampton’s accessible but intelligent text.
